Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, August 13
Putting to rest the controversy over the issue of holding back the amount of leave encashment of a retiring employee facing departmental inquiry or criminal proceedings, a three-Judge Bench of the Punjab and Haryana High Court has ruled that the payment can indeed be withheld in Punjab.
The ruling in the case of Punjab State Civil Supplies Corporation Limited and other petitioners against respondent Pyare Lal by Justice Hemant Gupta, Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain and Justice Kuldip Singh is significant as the High Court had expressed divergent views on the issue in its judgments.
