It is clear from the above statement that the employee who tends to resign from his/her Government service, he/she will have to deposit one month’s pay only, not allowances. If the employee is getting personal pay, technical pay, or special pay, etc he/she also has to deposit the same. However all allowances such as House Rent Allowance, Conveyance Allowance, Medical Allowance, Charge Allowance, Integrated Allowances, All Adhoc Relief Allowances, Disparity Reduction, or Special Allowances, he/she will not deposit.
If the employee got the job on the basis of a lump-sum pay package, then he/she will have to deposit all his lump sum pay.
I have already published an article on the topic of procedure to resign from Government Sevice. Those rules are taken from ESTA Code Federal where there the employee has to deposit 1d day’s pay. The Punjab Government employee has to deposit 1 month’s pay. I shall further elaborate on the rulings of resignation from service for Punjab soon.
