Encashment of 300 days of Earned Leave for Defence and other Industrial employees other than Railways

Encashment of 300 days of Earned Leave for Defence and other Industrial employees other than Railways

The Industrial Employees other than Railways were not allowed to accumulation of EL upto 300days and it was limited to 120 days before the issuance of order on 07/11/2006. It was a long pending demand of Staff Side Members of National Council JCM to grant of accumulation and encashment of 300 days of earned leave and it was agreed and granted with effect from the date of issue of the order that is from 07th November 2006. The employees those who were retiring on and after 07/11/2006 were unable to encash the Earned Leave to the extent of 300 days since they were restricted to accumulate their EL upto 120 days only. Due to that they couldn’t avail the benefit of encashment of 300 days EL at that time.

This anomaly had been removed after a long struggle and necessary order was issued on 25th September 2008 regarding the issue of shortfall in Earned Leave . To make up the shortfall in Earned Leave it had been decided by the government that in supersession of all earlier orders on the subject, both Earned Leave and Half Pay Leave shall be considered for encashment of leave subject to overall limit of 300 days. The cash equivalent payable for Earned Leave shall continue unchanged. However, cash equivalent payable for Half Pay Leave shall be equal to leave salary as admissible for Half Pay Leave plus Dearness Allowance admissible on the leave salary without any reduction being made on account of pension and pension equivalent of other retirement benefits payable.

Both the orders are given below;
