There arises a situation on this first of July, 2017, which falls on a Saturday. The first of July, as we all know is a date of an annual increment.

Question:
1. If an employee is on duty on 30.06.2017, Friday, and goes on leave from 03.07.2017, Monday, rejoins duty on 10.07.2017, Monday, which date will his increment be effective from?
2. If an employee is on leave on 30.06.2017, Friday, and rejoins duty on 03.07.2017, Monday, which date will his increment be effective from?

By leave, we are excluding Casual Leave, as that is not a recognised form of leave as per the FRs.

If anyone answers, could you be so kind as to refer to a Rule? I did go through the FR in the Increment Section, and could not find any.
