Entitlements after long extra ordinary leave
I am a confirmed Himachal Pradesh government employee (Education Department). I am 40 years of age and have 11 years of continuous service (excluding EOL). Currently, I am on EOL (Extra-ordinary leave- other then medical grounds) since 4.5 years. Due to family reasons I want to take premature retirement. 1. I want to know, will I be eligible for pension, superannuation and gratuity, if I take premature retirement now? 2. Also if I apply for NOC to the department to take up a job in a private college in Mumbai, will it weaken my case for retirement benefits? Will the department provide me NOC? 3. Can I resign while I am on EOL (Extra-ordinary leave- other then medical grounds) without joining the service?
Going through the Yearbook for Central Government Employees and talking about the ”Extra-ordinary Leave to Temporary Employee”, the maximum time limit of leave and absence is 5 years that is available to a permanent employee.
As per Central Civil Service (Leave) Rules, 1972 - Leave Rule – 32(1) of the said Rules talks about the same. Being a permanent employee of the central government and falling under the category of the above mentioned Rules, should not hamper your decision of taking a premature retirement.
