3 working days (Auto- approval)

Reason: It should not normally be granted for more than 5 days at a time. This is not any regular kind of leave. The absence in this category may be either anticipated or not anticipated. Considering the nature of CL, Suitable provision for auto-approval/forward may be inserted on the e-HRMS

>3 and <=5

6 working days (Auto-forwarding & Auto approval)

Implementation: If the employee requests Casual Leave up to 3 days, then the Reporting Officer should take appropriate decision on the request within 3 working days otherwise the leave request shall be deemed approved.

Further, if the period of casual leave exceeds 3 days (upto 5 days), the request would be automatically forwarded to the CO if no decision is taken at RO level for 3 working days. The Controlling Officer needs to take a decision on the request within next 03 working days otherwise the leave request shall be deemed approved.

6 working days (Auto- forwarding & auto- approval)

Maximum Accumulation of EL: 300+15.

Reason: If the employee requests for EL for a short period of 5 days (excluding prefix/suffix of holidays), a decision on the same in a maximum of 6 working days would be fair. Hence, auto-forward after 3 working days at RO level and deemed approval after 3 working days at CO level is recommended.

If the employee requests EL for more than 05 days, it affects the office work for a longer period. As per the existing guidelines, the maximum EL grant limit is 180 days at a time. Therefore. Automatic approval is not convenient in this situation. However, auto forward facility may be included at the RO level to avoid delay in taking decisions in this regard.

implementation:

If the employee requests EL for a shorter period I.e. up to 05 days, an appropriate decision (approve / disapprove / forward) on the request can be taken by the concerned R.O./C.O. in a time bound manner. The request shall be auto forwarded to C.O. if no decision is taken at R.O. level for 3 working days. Further, if no decision is taken at C.O. level, then it shall be deemed approved and balance updated.

If the period of EL exceeds 05 days, the RO has to take appropriate decision on the request within 03 working days of receipt of the request otherwise the request should be automatically forwarded to the CO. The Controlling Officer has to take a decision on the request within next 03 working days otherwise it will be part of the pendency report.
