Sabbatical Leave can be a paid one or without any pay or totally unpaid. During the unpaid sabbatical leave, the employees pension and other benefits would be frozen for the sabbatical period. Ask him submit an application for sabbatical leave or simply leave on loss of pay for two months. In either case the sanction order shall include all such particulars.

Kanchan ManakeshwarDear Mr. Umakanthan, Thank you for the reply. I really appreciate the prompt and quick response. Are there any legall implications or can a company form such a policy. Regards, Kanchan Manakeshwar

Sabbatical leave is generally granted in Universities to members of teaching faculty as well as in research institutions to scientists to pursue higher studies or doing some research independently elsewhere in cognate fields without severing the employer-employee relationship with or without salary depending on the nature of the purpose. Now a days some MNCs also include sabbatical leave in their leave policy so that key employees do not leave them but rejoin with better knowledge and new ideas which can add to the growth of their business.
If such elements are there in your organization, you can have sabbaticals in your leave policy. If not you may sanction leave on loss of pay at his written request to the concerned employee. When no salary no deductions too. But the period of such authorised absence would be taken into account just for the purpose of computation of continuous service only.
