Details of the Proposals of DSE
          I wish to submit that encashment of Half Pay Leave at the time of retirement of Government Employees are issued by the Government vide references lst, 2" and 5th cited. In the reference 8th cited Government have issued clarification stating that the above orders are applicable to the Government Employees only and not applicable to the Panchayat Raj and Municipal Institutions, if the above orders are not extended to them. In this connection I am to state that all the Government orders are directly extended to Government Employees only and the orders issued by the Government from time to time are extended to the Local Body Employees as well as Municipalities. In the same analogy there is no mention about the extension of the following HPL Government Orders to the Panchayat Raj Teachers, Municipal Teachers including non-teaching staff. The President, P.R.T.U., A.P., Hyderabad and other Teacher Associations represented that the following G.0s. may be extended to them, so as to enable to utilise the facility accorded by the Government.

2. G.O.Ms.No. 234, dated 27.10.1999.

Extend the benefits ordered in G.O.Ms.No. 154, Finance (FR-I) Department, dated 04.05.2010 with regard to Half Pay Leave to the Panchayat Raj Teachers
     The employees of Local Bodies/Municipal are enjoying the same benefits on par with Government Employees on the following except encashment of Half Pay Leave at the time of Retirement.
1. Revised Pay Scales.
2. Annual Grade Increments.
3. Salaries.
4. Pay Protection.
