sudhir.shirsathGreat and thank you sir. it means No matter he is on probation or Not but he has to complete his 240 days and he will be eligible for EL even though he has been extended probation period for 2 times.

EL or PL or Annual Leave with Wages as called u/s 79 of the Factories Act,1948 is an accumulative leave calculated on the basis of the number days worked by the employee during the preceding 12 months period with reference to the date of reckoning subject to the condition of such days being 240 in aggregate. In other words it is a leave enjoyable for the first time after completion of one year or 12 months service and afterwards. The employer is bound to pay wages for the total number of days of such leave at the credit of the employee on the date of termination of his employment for whatever reason. This is the legal position under any law providing such a particular leave benefit.
Now, coming to your query under this back drop, the answer would be an emphatic ' YES 'only. The right to earn EL is based on the no of days service rendered only and not on the status of employment like probationer or probationer under extended period of probation or permanent or fixed term contract employee etc.
