I believe you are a direct recruit belonging to some Group 'A' cadre in the Central Government, as you made a mention of probation of 2 years.
If my presumption is correct, you can be a permanent officer appointed against a permanent post. In that case you will be eligible for all the benefits of leave of a permanent employee, who can avail maximum of 5 years of continuous leave that may include all kinds of leave due to you. If no other leave is due, you can avail even EOL up to that maximum period under the provisions of Rule 33, read with Rules 11 & 12 of the CCS (leave) Rules 1972.
However, if you are not a permanent employee and was ON probation (NOT as a probationer), you would be eligible for EOL under the provisions of Rule 32, to the maximum limit as already suggested in Mr. Srinivas' post above.
