As of now any qualification acquired by an individual without having availed study leave, is not eligible for grant of qualification grant. This clause should go.
Any qualification gained by an officer even privately through correspondence course or evening classes should also be eligible for qualification grant

I think it is not necesary to have study leaves for acquiring higer qualification. However, you must have prior permission from your department. I am sure about this rule because I acquired Ph.D. as external student without taking study leave and still got the grant.

I fully agree with Mr Mehta. Actually if anyone in Govt service acquires higher qualification during service at his own efforts without any Govt. financial & if his qualification is professional, he should definitly be given some financial benifits either by giving promotion or advance increments.

Degree/post graduate degree in all subject, irrespective the fact whether it is professional/technical/educational qualification, should be incorporated in this scheme.

The govt. should grant study leave to non-gazetted officers who wish to study courses like LLB (LAW). At present only gazetted officers are granted study leave. The process of granting leave should be easy and simple.

In government service, those who are applied through proper channel for the permission of pursing that phd and a master degree simultaneously is possible to get the NOC from government service. Or Only doing one programme at a time, Pls clarify

Some of the staff of IT centre have got PGDCA from recognized universities have not been given incentives either in the form of cash or increments, because they obtained their degrees between 1992 and 2000. There was absent of proper circular covering these employees. Those who obtained degree / PGDCA before 1990 were given increments and those who obtained after 2000 were given cash incentives. But those who obtained their degrees between 1991 and 2000 were left out. Kindly clarify
