Section: 2A
Continuous service.
For the purposes of this Act, -
(1) an employee shall be said to be in continuous service for a period if he
has, for that period, been in uninterrupted service, including service which
may be interrupted on account of sickness, accident, leave, absence from
duty without leave (not being absence in respect of which an order [***]
treating the absence as break in service has been passed in accordance with
the standing order, rules or regulations governing the employees of the
establishment), lay off, strike or a lock-out or cessation of work not due to
any fault of the employee, whether such uninterrupted or interrupted service

Was his absenteeism a matter of punishment resulting in break in service?
