Dear sir,
The point wise relevant provisions of Factories Act 1948 are as under.
1) annual leave days granted per annum to employees -
Ans : Whatever you earn in the calendar year, can be availed in the subsequent year subject to prior approval by 15 days, thrice in a year and minimum 3 days in single instance.
2) policy on carry over of unutilized leave days
Ans : Unutilised EL can be carry forwarded subject to maximum 30 days or as provided in certified standing ordered.
3) policy on encashment of unutilized leave days.
Ans: No such provision is made for encashment unless you leave the organisation. However, depending upon circumstances like if you refused to avail the EL or to reduce the absence, some managements usually encash the balance on financial or calendar basis.

Share details of type of business and the state.
Leaves are covered under normative legislations: factories act or shops & establishment act. Normative because they stipulate method to calculate minimum quantum of leave for employee. Factories act min leave is calculated with the following formula: 1 day leave for every @ 20 days worked. Shops act leaves differ from state to state. You should know them so that your policy does not contravene the statutory requirements.
