New Delhi, the 18th' November, 2010
Sub: Study Leave for Fellowships offered by reputed Institutes
Study Leave is normally granted to a Government Servant for a course of study having direct and close connection with the sphere of his duty. However, it can also be granted for studies which may not be closely or directly connected with the work of a Government Servant, but which are capable of widening his mind in a manner likely to improve his abilities as a civil servant and to equip him better to collaborate with those employed in other branches of the public service. Keeping in view the above spirit, this Department had allowed Study Leave to those selected for the award of Jawaharlal Nehru Fellowships in relaxation of the rules.
2. In light of the above, this Department is examining the feasibility of bringing more Fellowships under the purview of Study Leave, on the same terms and conditions as the Jawaharlal Nehru Fellowships. All Ministries / Department are requested to provide relevant /requisite inputs regarding fellowships offered by reputed institutions which may be of benefit to their area of work. It would be appreciated if the feed back is received by the under signed by 15th December 2010. The same may be mailed to the under signed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
