No. 13023/2/2008-Estt(L)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training.

New Delhi, Dated the 11th May, 2011

Subject: Study Leave for Fellowships offered by reputed Institutes.
   The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M of even Number dated 18th November, 2010 on the above subject and to say that feed back on fellowships offered by reputed institutions which may be of benefit to their area of work is still awaited from various Ministries. 

    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 Fellowship in relaxation of the rules.

   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 undersigned by 20th May, 2011. 

   The same may be mailed to the under signed as The comments provided earlier by the Department’s may once again be mailed.
