RCSC introduces Annual Leave in addition to the existing leave options

The Royal Civil Service Commission has announced the introduction of its Annual leave scheme which will come into effect from next month. According to a notification released today, the new leave system is in addition to its existing leave options and that it is not a replacement for the earned leave. The RCSC says the new leave is mainly to promote periodic rejuvenation and work-life balance for Civil Servants.

According to the RCSC notification, the earned leave and LTC will be distributed month-wise and included as a part of the monthly variable compensation under the variable pay in line with the Pay Structure Reform Act.

The new policy will imply to all civil servants except for teachers who are entitled to annual school vacations.

However, unlike in the past, any unused leaves from the annual, casual and preparatory groups will now not be allowed to carry over to the subsequent year.

And the balance of the earned leave accumulated till the end of this month, up to a maximum of 90 days, can either be used while in service or encashed while exiting the civil service.
