Employees going on study leave must sign bond: Government

NEW DELHI: The central government has made it mandatory for its employees going on study leave to sign a bond confirming their commitment to put in requisite active service after expiry of the leave period. 

At present, an employee executes a bond committing to pay loans or money incurred on him by the government before proceeding on study leave. 

The move comes after government noticed that such bonds are being circumvented and officers who have availed study leave proceed on prolonged spells of leave due and admissible to them and do not put in active service for the requisite period as mentioned in the bond executed by them, the Ministry of Personnel said in an office memorandum issued today. 

The government said relevant changes in the service rules would be made and revised bonds would be issued incorporating a specific clause confirming commitment of the an employee to put in requisite active service after expiry of the study leave, it said. 

There are about 50 lakh central government employees.
