Subject:    Clarification regarding availing of Restricted Holiday

A doubt has been raised by one of the Controller’s office regarding mid fix of RH between Casual leave and regular leave. The matter has been examined with reference to provisions laid down under GOI’s decision No. 2 read with Rule 22 and Rule 11 of CCS Leave Rules and it is clarified that :-

(a)    RH can be mid-fixed between Casual Leave as CL is not a recognized form of leave.

(b) However, RH cannot be mid-fixed or sandwiched between two spells of any kind of regular leave viz. EL but can only be prefixed or suffixed.
