    • Sick leave /medical leave – Sick leave can be utilized when the employees are sick in case of their relatives. The amount of salary will be the same at the time of sick leave also .The leave which gets accumulated can be carry forward to the next consecutive year. Most of the organizations /company specifies the number of sick leave for the employees.
    • National Holidays /Festive holidays – Leaves can be utilized on days of National importance .Festive holidays are allotted on the basis of local festivals of that state specifically are granted to the according to the company policies.
    • Maternity & Paternity Leave – The leave policy allows the woman employees to avail for 12 weeks including 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after the delivery. Male employees have provision of paternal leave. Any male with less than surviving children for a period 15 days to take care of his children and new bon child.
    • Sabbatical leave – It is also called study leave. It is granted to the workers for pursuing higher studies & to retain them in the job after the leave period.
    • Quarantine leave – leave granted on account of any infectious diseases to any members in the family etc.
    • Leave not due - When an employee has no leave due to his credit, an employee has the discretion to sanction leave.

    Respected sir,as you are a government employee , you can take leave permission for continuing your studies.
    The leaves which are taken for the study purpose are called sabbatical leave.
    Under this rule you will be granted leave for your study purpose.
    For taking leave for your study , you have to specify all your full details regarding your studies,means the college/university in which you are going to study,its total duration,fee structure,for which course to your head of department.

    The government employees can take for its after taking joining of service of six months.
    During this period the employee will be paid half of its salary and the course fee along with the additional expenditures such as hostel fee,costs of books,stationaries etc.
