From the Archives (June 18, 1968): ‘Cash’ for leave surrendered by govt. staff

The Madras Government has proposed to amend the leave rules of its employees providing for the facility of “cashing” a certain portion of their earned leave. According to the proposal, Government servants, who take earned leave for a period of not less than 30 days, will be allowed to surrender the balance of the earned leave to their credit on the date of commencement of the leave, subject to a maximum of 30 days. They will be granted leave salary and allowances in respect of the earned leave so surrendered. A condition will, however, be laid that there should be an interval of not less than 12 months between the surrenders of earned leave. A more or less similar scheme is in operation in the neighbouring Kerala State. The Madras Government has proposed to make available the concession here also, in response to representations from its employees. Formal orders are expected to be issued shortly.
