8. Leave Salary Contribution

Rate of Leave Salary Contribution

  1. Three monthly rate of leave salary contribution in respect of all classes of Government servants governed by the Central Civil Services (Leave) Rules is 11% of pay drawn in foreign service.

  2. If the foreign employer pays contributions, the percentage is applied to the pay actually drawn in foreign service.

  3. If the contributions are paid by the Government servant himself, the percentage is applied to the net pay drawn during foreign service. Net pay means the pay that would be left after meeting the pension and leave salary contributions. In such cases, the percentage of leave salary contribution is not applied directly on the actual pay drawn during foreign service, but an element of compensation is taken into account for both the contributions before the percentage for leave salary contribution is calculated.

  4. Three types of cases may arise and three different formulae can be applied in such cases :

    1. Where pension contribution alone is paid by the employee :

      L = ( F - P )     x    r / 100
       
    2. Where leave salary contribution alone is paid by the employee:

      L = F    x    r / ( 100 + r )
       
    3. Where both the contributions are paid by the employee:

      L = ( F - P)     x     r / ( 100 + r )
       

    Where  L is the leave salary contribution,
                F is the pay actually drawn in foreign services,
                P is the pension contribution, and
                r is the rate of leave salary contribution.

     

 

9. Pension Contribution

According to G.I., M.F., O.M. No. F. 8 (4)1E. III/82, dated 15-2-1984, pension contribution payable during the active period of foreign service shall be based on the maximum of the pay as defined in FR 9 (11) plus dearness pay appropriate to such maximum plus interim relief appropriate to such maximum of the post held at the time of proceeding on foreign service or to which he may receive proforma promotion while on foreign service.

Since D.A. equal to 50% of basic pay is treated as Dearness Pay 1-4-2004 and will be taken into account for retirement benefits, pension contribution is to be worked out based on the maximum of the pay plus dearness pay appropriate to such maximum.
