Meaning of Earned Leave:

Normally in pay package of the employee two day or so is allowed as leave per month  and if this leave is not availed then it will be accumulated subject to certain maximum limit and at the time of retirement/otherwise or on leaving the employer, pay equivalent to leave remaining unutilised in the employee account will be paid to employee. (rules varies from organisation to organisation).This type of leave is called Earned Leave and amount received in lieu of this unutilised amount is called leave salary/leave encashment.

(A)Leave salary received by any employee during the period of  service.

Leave salary received by any employee during the period of  service is fully Taxable.however relief under section 89 read with rule 21A can be claimed (Circular no 431 Dated September 12,1985)
(B)Leave Salary to At the time of Retirement /superannuation or otherwise.
 (i) Leave salary to Central/State Government employee

 Leave salary given to Central/State Government employees at the time of retirement /superannuation in respect of period of earned leave at his credit ,is fully exempted.{section 10(10AA)(i)}
(ii)Leave salary given to  other employee (non Central/State Government employee is exempted as per detail below.{section 10(10AA)(ii)}
Least of following will be exempted.
Leave encashment Actually received.
Last 10 Month average salary .(average salary explained below)
Maximum amount fixed by the Government from time to time (given below)
Cash equivalent of salary in respect of the period of earned leave to the credit of the employee only at the time of retirement whether on superannuation or otherwise calculated maximum by 30 days maximum for every year of actual service rendered to employer from whose he has retired.
Maximum Amount Specified to be exempted From time to time:The amount has been last revised in 1998 and after that period DA of the employee has been increased by 100 % but this amount has not been increased then so even by rate of inflation also this amount should increased to 6.00 lacs at least.what do you think????.It seems from the cahrt that in period 1986 to 1987 the maximum amount was linked with the DA increase but after that periodical review has been started. In my view this amount should be linked to DA increase and should be declared at least in one year like Cost inflation index used for capital gain calculation.
