I have a doubt on the leave rule for West Bengal primary school teachers. Could somebody please clarify the following query on leave?
1. What is the maximum limit of Half-pay-leave in whole service life of a teacher?

As per West Bengal Primary Education (Leave of Teacher of Primary Schools) Rules, 1999, Rule 4.d)
Half Pay Leave – A teacher may be granted half pay leave on appropriate medical certificate on the ground of his / her illness or private affairs not exceeding 30 days for each completed year of service:
Provided that no half pay leave shall granted for more than 180 days at a time.
So, it appears that there is no upper limit of HPL accumulated in whole service life.July 15, 2013 at 7:55 pm #78321
It sounds well but is it possible? If there is no upper limit of HPL, can anybody avail all accumulated HPL? For example; if a teacher’s service span is 30 years, the HPL will be of :-
(36 x 36)/2 = 648 days with full pay on MEDICAL GROUND & PRIVATE AFFAIRS.
Is it possible?
Now, my understanding is as below:
As per clause # 4.f – Medical Leave can be availed for a maximum period of 180 days in whole service life and as per clause # 4.e.i – Commuted Leave can also be availed for 180 days at maximum in entire service life.
Thus, a total of (180 + 180) = 360 days full pay leave (360 x 2 = 720 days HPL) is entitled for a primary teacher in his/her service tenure.
Please correct me in case I am wrong.

@tapas999: (36 x 36)/2 = 648 days with full pay on MEDICAL GROUND & PRIVATE AFFAIRS.
should it be (30 x 30)/2 =… as the service life is of 30 yrs and max 30 HPL is added for every complete year.
However I heard that 180 days of HPL remain in acounts but if more than that is earned they are lapsed. for example if a teacher is in service for 10 years and s/he has taken no HPL or commuted leave his/her available HPL will be 180 days not 30 x 10 =300 days but if s/he takes 20 HPL every year s/he will have 100 days of HPL in his/her account. so s/he gets (20 x10) + 100 = 300 days HPL.
Waiting fore more opinion.
