Dear Sir,

Sub: Accumulation of Leave on Average Pay (LAP) by the employees – Advance Correction Slip No. 78 of IREC Vol.I. (1985 Edition) reprint Edition of 1995.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM item No.5/2010.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)I-2010/FE-4/2 dated 05/07/2013 addressed to GS/NFIR.


With reference to above, the Federation encloses herewith a copy of its letter of even number dated 22/02/2016 addressed to the DOP&T seeking review of the case as the situations in the Railways are different.

NFIR requests the Railway Board to pursue the matter again with the Ministry of Personnel (DoP&T) at appropriate higher level for obtaining special dispensation so that leave can be got accumulated beyond 300 days by the Railway employees. A copy of the proposal being sent to the DoP&T may be endorsed to the Federation for taking follow up action.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,

New Delhi, the 24th September, 2012


Subject: Accumulation of Earned Leave/Leave on Average Pay (LAP) beyound 300 days.

The Undersigned is directed to refer to Ministry of Railways (Railway Board) O.M.No. E(P&A)I-2010/FE-4/2 dated 10.9.2012 on the above subject and to say that propasal therein is not agreed to as the justification given for the same is not satisfactory. When due leave is not even being availed and accumulations are lapsing there does not seem to be any case for further compounding such unavailed accumulations.

Further the Govt. Policy under lying the CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972 is to encourage Government servant to break the monotony of routine work through periodical savvaticals and balancing the same against the demand of public interest & exigencies. Ministry of Railways is requested to revisit their policy of grant of leave, so that the workforce is not denied leave in cases of acute personal needs and also be encouraged for periodic time off.
