Dear you must have Certified Standing Orders in your factory. All the provisions of leaves must be added in the Standing Orders. However, I clarify here that as per Factory Act an employee will get 1 PL on every 20 working days, as such if an employee is present whole of the year in the factory, he/she will get 15 PL. Casuals are 7, these are not encashable, will lapse if not taken. 8 or more days Festival holidays and if the employee is not covered under the ESI Act than he /she is entitled for minimm 10 days sick leaves. Maternity leaves is as per the Maternity Benefit Act & ESIC Act. Except PL no other leaves are encashable neither can be accruied.
Good Gupta ji.

Dear Priyanka,
As per Factory Act, 1948 every adult workers who qualified 240 Days in Last calender year he/she is entitled for Earn Leave on every 20 Working Day. This leave is availed or encashed.

No of Casual Leave in a Year = 7 Days
No of National Festival Holidays in a Year = 7 Days
No of Sick Leave in a year = 7/14 Days
No of Absent in a year = ........ Days
Total No of EL=(365(Sundays+SL+NFH+SL+Absent)/20)
As per Punjab Industrial Establishment (National Festival Holiday, Casual Leave & Sick Leave) Act, 1965.
Maximum 7 Days Casual Leave (CL)
Maximum 7 Days National Festival Holidays (NFH)

CL, NFH & SL Laps on every Calender Year and no encashment of these Leve.
Beside all these Leave you may be given to Maternity, Paternity and you mentioned above allowed to staff and workers also.

Dear Pravin,
This is to inform you that Factories Act, 1948 do not have any provision relating to grant of any national holidays. National holidays are given to the employees/workers as per the State Industrial Establishment ( National & Festival Holidays and Casual & Sick Leaves) Act.Therefore, go through your applicable State Act.
For grant of weekly off day plz first see under which of the Act employees are entitled to have paid weekly off day & then go through that Act to see the eligibility of the rest day with wages. If none of the Act is applicable then see your Leave Rules.

Dear Rizwan
Thanks for the details.
As per the rule of 1 EL for every 20 working day the maximum number of EL shall be 18 (365/ 20) but why 52 sundays, 7 CL, 7SL and 7 NFH are added into this 365 and then divided by 20 in order to calculate ELs.
Are these not included in 365 days itself?
In our company we get 21 ELs please confirm how this 21 days are aligned with the basic rule i.e 1 EL for every 20 working days?
