Dinesh DivekarDear Michelle,
The company is registered under either Shops and Establishment Act or the Factories Act of the particular state. Please find out provisions of the employee leave of the act applicable to you. The number of days of leave can be more than act applicable but not less. Secondly, employee leave is a statutory benefit and its denial is a transgression of the law.

saswatabanerjeeDinesh-ji has shown you the correct approach
However, please note that in both acts, the leave normally accumulates in January for the previous year and from the time you join to January of the next year, you are not eligible for leaves.
However, you may also see the Model Standing Orders of your state and consider that as a benchmark
