Dear Sir,
I had taken leave from 24 January 2017 to 27 January 2017. Since 26 January 2017 is a declared National holiday I had applied for only 3 days leave where as the HR is considering it as 4 days leave since i had taken leave before & after 26 January 2017.
Is this practice correct. I agree if it was done for the leave taken from Saturday to Monday and they consider Sunday also as leave, but is it applicable for declared holidays like NFH.
Please enlighten.

Dear Mahesh,
As per NFH Act, sec.5, sub sec.3(ii), all national holidays to be paid and no suffix - prefix is admissible for casual or sick leave or in-between leave during the national holiday.
Therefore, in your case the holiday on 26th Jan to be paid.
For the purpose, festival holidays, the employee should have worked for a minimum of 30 days, in an immediately preceding 90 days, of such festival holiday.
To sum up, if an employee, is on leave either before or after a national holiday or on leave on both ends of a national holiday, the holiday has to be paid, since he is on service on the National Holiday.
Where as immediately before the festival holiday, he should have worked for 30 days in total during the period of 90 days (i.e 1/3 rd attendance, including weekly holidays and other allowed holidays and allowed leave)

Any holiday coming in between the start and end date of the leave is counted as leave only, to the best of my view/knowledge.
