5. Regulation of allowance in different circumstances
The drawal of compensatory (city) allowance in the following circumstances shall be regulated as hereinafter provided :
(a) Leave :
(i) Compensatory (city) allowance may be granted during leave at the rate at which the allowance was granted immediately before the commencement of the leave. For this purpose, leave means total leave of all kinds, not exceeding 120 days, and the first 120 days of the leave, if the actual duration of the leave exceeds that period, but does not include leave preparatory to retirement, leave preparatory to final cessation of service, refused leave or terminal leave or terminal leave or extraordinary leave taken otherwise than on medical certificate. When holidays are combined with leave, the entire period of holidays and leave shall be taken as one spell of leave.
(i) If an employee who has been granted leave on medical certificate exceeding 120 days is retired on grounds of ill-health incapacitating him for further service, no recovery shall be made of compensatory (city) allowance already drawn in respect of that leave, notwithstanding the fact that the entire leave is treated as leave preparatory to retirement.
(ii) The limit of 120 days shall be extended to 8 months in the case of an employee suffering from T.B., cancer or other ailments during the period of his leave on medical certificate, irrespective of whether the leave is on medical certificate from the very commencement or it is in continuation of other leave.
Provided that the limit of 8 months may be extended by the Chairman or the Deputy Chairman for such further period, or periods, as he may decide, at his sole discretion.
Provided further that the medical certificate accompanying the application for leave shall be a medical certificate signed or countersigned by a Medical Officer of the Board.

Compensatory (city) allowance may be granted to an employee deputed for training out of India at the rate admissible from time to time for the first six months of his absence from his post in India under the Board.
(c) Training in India :
Compensatory (city) allowance may be granted to an employee who is deputed for training or a course of instruction in India and whose period of training or course of instruction is treated as duty, for the entire period of training or course of instruction, at the rate admissible to him from time to time.
(d) Suspension :
Compensatory (city) allowance may be granted to an employee under suspension, subject to such conditions, as the authority ordering his suspension may direct, on the basis of the pay he was in receipt of on the date of suspension.
(e) Re-employment :
Compensatory (city) allowance may be granted to an employee who is re-employed in the Boards service.

(b) if he is governed by the contributory provident fund scheme, the allowance shall be calculated on the basis of the pay, he would have drawn in the post in which he is re-employed, had no deduction been made therefrom on account of the pensionary equivalent of his retirement benefits.
