Audit instruction regarding rule 59

There is no restriction in these rules on the grant to a government servant on the abolition of his post of such leave as was admissible to him immediately before the abolition of the post. In the case of a government servant who holds no lien on any post except that which it is proposed to abolish, the correct practice in deciding the exact date from which the post is to be abolished is to defer the date of abolition up to the termination of such leave as may be granted.

60. Leave is earned by duty only. For the purpose of this rule a period spent in foreign service counts as duty if contribution towards leave-salary is paid on account of such period.
