Method for Crediting Earned Leave

The matter has been examined in light of the CCS (Leave) Rules 1972 and it is stated that, insofar as Central Government employees to whom the CCS (Leave) Rules are applicable, Rule 26(b) of the CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972, stated that the leave at the credit of a Government servant at the close of the previous half-year shall be carried forward to the next half-year, subject to the condition that the leave so carried forward plus the credit for the half-year do not exceed the maximum limit of 300 days.

Earned Leave Rules for Central Government Employees

Further it also provides that if the earned leave at the credit of Government servant as on the last date of December or June is 300 days or less but more than 285 days, the advance credit of 15 days earned leave on first day of January or July beyond 300 days shall be credited in leave account and be kept separately and first adjusted against the earned leave that the Government servant takes during that half-year and the balance, if any, shall be credited to the leave account at the close of the half-year, subject to the condition that balance of such earned leave plus leave already at credit do not exceed the maximum limit of 300 days.

Since CDS (IE) Leave Rules 1954 is a separate leave rules governing Industrial Employees under the Ministry of Defence, the copy of the JCM letter as indicated in para- 1 above is hereby forwarded to Ministry of Defence being the nodal Ministry, for action as appropriate.
This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.
