According to an ET report, central government employees will get disbursal of leave encashment in their bank accounts before retirement. A proposal in this regard is being worked out in consultation with pay and accounts officers of the departments concerned.
The report added that all central government departments have also been told to keep a check on employees' leaves and to ensure they do not exceed the maximum limit of 315 days to avoid any litigation or legal proceedings for want of extra payment in lieu of them. All departments have been directed that the dues of leave encashment in respect of government servants retiring on attaining the age of superannuation are discharged with due promptness.
There are about 50 lakh central government employees.
