leave is satisfied that there is a reasonable prospect of the
Government servant returning to duty on the expiry of the leave and it should
be limited to the half pay leave he is likely to earn thereafter.

clause applies for permission to retire voluntarily, the leave not due shall,
if the permission is granted, be cancelled.

effect from the date on which such leave commenced. An undertaking to this effect should,
therefore, be taken from Government servants who avail of leave not due. The question whether a Government servant
should be called upon to refund the amount of leave salary should be decided
on the merits of each case. E.g. if the retirement is voluntary, refund
should be enforced. If it is
unavoidable by reasons of ill health incapacitating him for further service,
no refund need be insisted upon.
It has
further been decided that when leave not due is granted to Government servant
under the above rule and he applies for permission to retire voluntarily or
resigns of his won volition at any time after returning to duty, the question
of refund of leave salary in respect of leave not due already availed of
before return to duty shall, to the extent it has not been subsequently wiped
