Chief Secretaries of all States/UTs

Subject: - The All India Services (Study Leave) Regulations, 1960 - Obtaining of prior approval of the Central Government for grant of/extension of ex-India study leave/leave in continuation of ex-India study leave.

Sir/Madam,

I am directed to refer to this Department's letter No.9/26/71-AIS(III) dated 23rd September, 1972, which, inter-alia, envisages that all cases, in which the State Government propose to send a member of the All India Service abroad on leave including study leave, should be referred to the respective Cadre Controlling Authorities in the Central Government. Further, this Department's letter No.l1020/20/77-AIS (III) dated 26th October, 1977, envisages, inter-alia, that application for grant of study leave abroad should be forwarded to the respective Cadre Controlling Authorities in the Central Government at least two months before the last date prescribed for the purpose and the member of the Service as well as the sponsoring Government should not presume the sanction of study leave.

2. However, a number of cases has come to the notice of this Department wherein the sponsoring Governments did not send the proposals in time, did not seek prior approval of the Central Government for grant of/extension of ex-India study leave/leave in continuation of ex-India study leave and sought ex-post facto approval of leave from the Central Government in a routine manner. This approach, while causing administrative problems, results in avoidable inconvenience to the members of the All India Services.

3. The following instructions, as contained in the Departments letter No.11020/20/77-AIS(III) dated 26th October,1977, are reiterated for strict compliance by all the sponsoring authorities as well as members of the All India Services:

(i) Applications seeking admission to grant of study leave for pursuing higher studies abroad should be forwarded to the respective Cadre Controlling Authorities at least 2 months before the commencement of study leave/leave for study purposes.

(ii) Before forwarding applications for grant of study leave to the respective Cadre Controlling Authorities, the State Governments should satisfy themselves that the applicants fulfill the conditions of eligibility laid down in the AIS (Study Leave) Regulations, 1960.

(iii) The requisite information/copies of the documents, as mentioned in the Check-list (Copy enclosed) should be invariably provided.

(iv) Members of the Services concerned and the sponsoring Governments. Administrative Ministries/Departments should not presume the sanction of study leave.

(v) Applicants should not make any preparations for journey etc. in anticipation of sanction of study leave to avoid frustration. They will do so only at their risk.

4. The same procedure should also be adopted for extension of ex-India study leave/other kind of leave in continuation of ex-India study leave.

5. The contents of this letter may be brought to the notice of all members of the All India Services.

Yours faithfully.
(G.C. Pandey)
Under Secretary to the Government of India
