Full Detail of Leaves Rules for Federal and Provincial Employees


How Leave is earned


  •  A Govt servant earns leave as and when he is in service except on earned leave. When an employee is on earned leave, there will be no count of leave in his credit of the period he/she is on earned leave.
  • A period spent by a Govt servant in Foreign Service will qualifies him to earn leave but the condition is that he/she must be paid by the Govt.
  •  A Govt employee of Non-Vacation department (or an employee who has not vacations round a year .eg summer holidays, winter holidays etc) will earn 4 leaves on full pay in a full calendar month. Duty period less than 15 days in a month will not be credited in to the leave credit of an employee. If the duty period is more than 15 days, it will be credited into his/her leave credit.
  • A Govt employee of Vacation department will earn only one leave per month and the vacation period will not be considered as part of his leave credit.
How Much Leaves on full pay can be availed


The leaves on full pay can be availed at one time at the following conditions:

a-      120 days leave without medical certificate

b-      180 days leave with medical certificate

c-      365 days leave in full service on medical grounds

Note: All these leaves will be deducted from the leave credit of the employee.


Leave on Half Pay


If an employee needs more leaves than leaves in his credit, then there is option for an employee to convert some of his leaves on full pay into leaves on half pay or entire full pay leaves into half pay leave. The example of this condition is that suppose an employee needs 50 days leave and he/she has only 25 leaves on full pay in his leave credit, then he can convert 25 days full pay leave into 50 days leave on half pay.


Leave without Pay or Extra Ordinary Leave


An employee can avail leave without pay for a maximum period of 5 years at a time on any reason but the condition is that the civil servant must have rendered a minimum continuous service of 10 years.

If the civil servant has not completed continuous 10 years service then the employee can avail 2 years leave without pay at the discretion of the head of the department.

A civil servant can avail 5 years leave without pay more than once after a spell of 10 years each time.


Special Leave for Female Civil Servant


A female civil servant is entitled to avail 135 days leave on her husband’s death. Such leave will not be debited from her leave credit. In this condition the female servant will provide death certificate of her husband and the leave will start from the date of death of her husband.

Maternity Leave


(1) Maternity leave may be granted on full pay, outside the leave account, to a female civil servant to the extent of ninety days in all from the date of its commencement (as specified in the application for leave) or forty-five days from the date of her confinement, whichever be earlier.

(2) Such leave may not be granted for more than three times in the entire service of a female civil servant except in the case of a female civil servant employed in a vacation department who may be granted maternity leave without this restriction.
(3) For confinements beyond the third one, the female civil servant (in a non-Vacation Department) would have to take leave from her normal leave account.
(4) The spells of maternity leave availed of prior to the coming into force of these rules shall be deemed to have been taken under these rules.
(5) Maternity leave may be granted in continua¬tion of, or in combination with, any other kind of leave including extraordinary leave as may be due and admissible to a female civil servant.
(6) Leave salary to be paid during maternity leave shall be regulated as for other leave, in accordance with the existing instructions of the Government.
(7) The leave salary to be paid during maternity leave will, therefore, remain unaffected even if an increment accrues during such leave and the effect of such an increment will be given after the expiry of maternity leave, in the event of resumption of duty by such female civil servant.”


Disability Leave for Civil Servant


An employee disabled by injury, ailment or disease can get leave on disability grounds for a maximum period of 720 days. The condition is that this disability be a hindrance to serve his/her duty.  Such an employee will get full pay for 180 days and half pay for the remaining period.


Study Leave


Study leave is granted for a maximum 2 years on half pay in the entire service to the civil Govt servant who has 5 years service. This leave is granted to study scientific technical problems.

Leave without pay can be combined with study leave but the condition of 2 years will not now apply in this case.


Ex-Pakistan Leave


This leave is granted on full pay to the civil servant who applies for proceeding abroad during leave or at the time of posted abroad.

Such an employee will be paid for the actual period that he spends abroad for a maximum period of 120 days.

Ex-Pakistan leave can be granted on full pay, half pay or without pay which ever is applicable.

    My case is similar to to contract followed by regular service: Study leave required.
    I have worked on contractual basis for four yrs and then got a permanent appointment by applying through proper channel without any gap.Total service is around six years out of which 2 years is on regular basis.But there is a differnce, my contract says that the officer will get all the benefits and allowances including annual increments as per BS-17. Also appointment notification says that rules leave for regular employees will be applicable to contract employees.

    After discussions and research I found following options
    1. Including contract service towards the length of service (which has proved to much complicated )

    2. Try to earn advance study leave i e submit an affidavit that I will come back n service the department (no idea about it)

    3. convert leave on full pay into leave on half pay and than apply for EOL for two years>

    Dear Shumaila
    I am working as lecturer in chemistry in Higher Education Department of KPK. I was trying for study leave for Ph.D. But instead of study leave I was granted 2 years (5-9-2008 to 4-9-2010) Ex Pakistan leave (without pay) and 310 days(5-9-2010 to 10-7-2011) EOL(without pay). I did my Ph.D. form China during this period and joined back the department. As my leave was without pay so I was debarred from 3 annual increments for the said period. Now I want to convert this leave into study leave or at least get the lost 3 annual increments. Would you please guide me that how can do that. The department is not ready for it.

  85. It is submitted that I am a civil servant. I applied for study leave for MS Elect. Engg from Sweden but my department granted me Study Leave + EOL. My total length of service was 8 years at that time. Because EOL has been deducted from qualifying length of service, my promotion has been deferred. I have applied for conversion of EOL and into Study leave to the head of department along with all necessary documents (Foreign Degree + Passport + Embassy of Pakistan Letter) but they refused of my request.
    Sir, I would request you to please help me by providing appropriate leave rule in lieu above cited statement. Should I proceed for litigation in Court or FSTC. Because my promotion has been deferred due to EOL. Please advise me.

  86. Dear Shumaila Kamal,

    First of all its really great effort from your side about keeping informed about rules and regulations.

    Please Attach a Latest Service rules in Handbook shape so that employees can attach relevant rules while sending their applications.

  87. hello,

    i am a contract employee in govt dept…i want to know about entitlement of earned leaves to contract employees and relevant rules….

    As per the terms of fixing contract appointment a contract employee in non vacation dept/post earns 10 day E/L per year to be availed by him during the contract…

    As there 12 months in a year and entitlement of e/l is only 10 days so how many leaves a contract employee will earn each month.

    your reply on the said matter will highly appreciated

      1. As per contact policy, 2004, only 10-days can be availed as earned leave in non vacation department, but no limit on monthly basis. You can get only out of leave earned by you in the service period so completed.

  88. Following is mentioned in your article:
    “A non-vacation department female civil servant or female employee who is not entitled vacations (summer, winter vacations etc) can avail maternity leave without any restriction and the leaves will be debited from her leave account credit”
    can you please give the reference of this in leave rules 1980.

    para 13(2) of leave rule 1980 states that:
    ” Such leave may not be granted for more than three times in the entire service of a female civil servant except in the case of a female civil servant employed in a vacation department who may be granted maternity leave without this restriction”

    which means may not be granted except employed in vacation department.

    kindly give me the reference of debiting the leave of account of non-vocation department upon maternity leave. thanks in advance.

      1. I suggest, that following is correct,

        “A vacation department female civil servant or female employee who is entitled vacations (summer, winter vacations etc) can avail maternity leave without any restriction and the leaves will be debited from her leave account credit”
