Dear All,

No act precribes for a strict guidelines regarding the basis of EL calculation in private sector.

The prevailing and most acceptable formula for EL encashment is calculated on Basic +DA but there is no such act or law which gives details of such calculation. It varies from orgaonization to organization and as per the service agreement.

In my organization we encash EL on gross salary and not on basic +DA.

Hope you all will agree with my views.
