It is not known whether you are covered under the Shops and Estt Act or Factories Act.
In either case , maximum accumulation of EL is provided for in the respective Acts. Refer to the same and unless your company policy for accumulation is better, you may do the encashment as provided by the law.

Being in Hospitality and service sector, you will be covered under the Shop & Establishment Act. Section. I assume you are from Gurgaon, so Punjab & Haryana Shop & estab. act applies to your employer. Section 14 (b) of the same act mentions the provisions to encash un-utilized EL at the time of exit.

But what if employee leaves on his own. I am not able to get clarity on that.

Sec 14(d).1 of Punjab & Haryana Shop & establishment act clearly mentions the total number of days of leave to be carried forward to the succeeding year is 30; however this should not be confused as the maximum number of leaves to be encashed at the time of exit.
Request you to share citations of court judgement or any mention of the same in the said act; stating a limit on encashment of leaves upon exit.
