    Default Leave on account of local body polls

    Please clarify whether central government offices can declare leave on account of local body polls in Tamilnadu on 17th and 19th october based on the orders of the Tamilnadu government. As per the existing GOI instructions issued in 2001 and available in Swamy Establishment and Administration book under the chapter LEAVE , central government employees can be granted permission to cast their vote in the local body polls. Has any central government offices have declared leave on 17th october.
    Please respond.

    Regards
    Gokul

    Thanks a lot victor sir, actually there is lot of misunderstanding and confusing in many central govt offices / autonomous bodies, some have declared holiday, whereas many have given only permission we have also given only permission to employees. .. after consulting other central govt employees, DOPT order and local central govt employee welfare coordination committee..

    Kindly refer to CCS(Joining Time) Rules, 1979. As per Rule 5(1) of these rules, "joining time shall commence from the date of relinquishment of charge of the old post". This implies that the officer in case he is on leave can proceed on transfer only after he joins his old post and hands over charge.

    If an officer is on leave than the admin has two options. Either allow the officer to avail the sanctioned leave and relieve him after he joins back from leave OR recall the officer to duty before the expiry of leave under Rule 23 of CCS(Leave) Rules, 1972 and then relieve him on joining duty.

    Further, a person on leave is entitled to leave salary (Rule 43(2) of CCS(Leave) Rules, 1972) while a person on joining time will be treated as on duty and entitled to joining time pay (Rule 7 of CCS(JT) Rules, 1979). This implies that a person cannot be on leave and joining time concurrently since he can either draw leave salary or joining time pay.

    Victor
