Order:
1. Government have had under consideration for some time past, the question of allowing Government servants who avail themselves earned leave. to surrender an equal period of earned leave, if admissible and in lieu of the leave so surrendered get leave-salary and allowances. The Joint Staff Council had also considered this subject at its meeting held on 28-12-1968 and generally supported the scheme. Government accordingly issue the following orders :

(i) Government servants (both Gazetted and Non-Gazetted) who take earned leave for a period of not less than thirty days will be allowed to surrender the balance of earned leave to their credit on the date of commencement of the leave or any portion thereof at their option subject to a maximum of thirty days and will be sanctioned leave-salary and allowances in lieu of the leave so surrendered.


(ii) The authorities who are empowered to sanction earned leave will be competent to accept surrender of earned leave.
The number of Government servants in an Officer or Department to whom earned leave is sanctioned at a time for the purpose of enabling surrender of leave should be judiciously limited so that, the conduct of work in offices is not affected.

(iii) Application for surrender of earned leave should be made along with the application for grant of leave.

Clarification:--The application for sanction of surrender of earned leave if not submitted along with the application for availment of leave, may be submitted before the leave is actually sanctioned by the competent authority.

(iv) The number of days of earned leave surrendered under these orders, will be debited against the leave account of the Government servant and will be reckoned as surrendered to the date of commencement of leave.
(v) There should be an interval of not less than twenty-four months between one surrender and another of earned leave. That is, an officer who avails himself of this benefit will be entitled to apply for surrender of earned leave again only after the lapse of twenty- four months from the date of expiry of the period of earned leave to which the previous surrender related.

(vi) The total of the earned leave actually availed of and the earned leave surrendered should not exceed the maximum leave admissible to the Government servant at any one time, viz., 120 days under Andhra Pradesh Leave Rules and the three sets of Leave Rules of ex-Hyderabad State and four months on leave on average pay under Fundamental Rules.

(vii) In the case of Government servants who are on the verge of retirement the period of leave surrendered should not exceed the period of duty between the date of the expiry of the earned leave actually availed of and the date of compulsory retirement.

(viii) The leave-salary and allowances admissible for the leave surrendered will be equivalent to the leave-salary and allowances for the first thirty days of the leave enjoyed. The leave salary and allowances for the surrendered leave shall be worked out as per the illustrations given in the Annexure to this order.

(ix) The leave-salary and allowances for the period of surrendered leave will be paid along with the leave-salary and allowances for the earned leave of not less than thirty days actually taken by the Government Servants. If the leave-salary for the first thirty days of the actual leave availed of is drawn in two installments, consequent on the leave falling partly in two months, the leave-salary for the surrendered leave will be drawn along with the second spell of such leave-salary. If the leave-salary is drawn in advance in terms of G.O.Ms.No.597, Finance (Accounts), Dt. 6-12-1963 and subsequently extended in G.O.Ms.No. 43 Finance, Dt. 11-2-1969 until further orders the Government servant will have the option to draw the leave-salary for the leave surrendered along with the leave-salary in advance.

(x) The leave salary for the period of leave surrendered will not be liable to any deductions on account of Provident Fund Subs creations and repayment of any advances, etc., to Government and re-employment or any dues to Co-operative Societies etc.

(xi) Persons who are on earned leave on the date of these orders will be entitled to apply for surrender of earned leave provided they avail themselves of a minimum of thirty days earned leave.

(xii) The concession shall also apply to Government servants who are on foreign services or on deputation to Government of India or other State Governments.

(xiii) The benefit of surrender of leave will be allowed in cases of leave preparatory to retirement but not in the cases of refused leave granted under the Fundamental Rules, Andhra Pradesh Leave Rules, 1933, or the corresponding rules in the Hyderabad Civil Services Rules. 

(xiv) If a Government servant who is permitted to surrender leave voluntarily returns to duty before the expiry of the thirty days' leave he should not ordinarily be permitted to re-join duty. If however, such an officer is permitted to rejoin duty, the orders regarding surrender of leave should be cancelled.

(xv) As regards cases of compulsory recall to duty such recall will be made only when it is warranted by the exigencies of public services. During the period of such recall the orders regarding surrender of leave should be cancelled. As soon as the services of the officer can be spared, he should be relieved of his duties to leave. In such cases, the period of leave enjoyed before compulsory recall to duty will be counted against the minimum of thirty days necessary to enable an officer to surrender his leave as required under Rule (i) above.www.apteachers.in

(xvi) In order to guard against commission to post a debt in the leave account in respect of the leave surrendered, in the case of Non- Gazetted Government servants the details of the surrendered leave should be noted in the body of the Service Book and in the leave account when leave salary is drawn. A certificate that the necessary entries have been made in the Service Book and the leave account should be furnished by the Drawing Officer to the bill in which the leave-salary for the surrendered leave is drawn.

(xvii) These orders also apply to Government servants who are governed by leave rules in the Fundamental Rules and Hyderabad Civil Service Rules in whose cases the references to 'earned leave' and 'thirty days' should be read as 'leave on average pay' and 'privilege leave' and 'one month' respectively.
