1) G.0.Ms.No.311, Finance (CMPC) Department, dated:31-12-2014.

2) From the Senior Accounts Officer, Office of the Principal Accountant General (A&E) Tamil Nadu, Letter No.GAD- I/IV /GENL/2014-15/3816/132427, dated:14-01-2015 and 22-05-2015.

3) From the Pay and Accounts Officer (Secretariat), Letter

4) From the Pay and Accounts Officer (South), Letter No.PAO(S)/BAS-l/Ul/120/2015, dated:22-05-2015.



In the Government Order first cited above, orders were issued to sanction one notional increment, for the  purpose of pensionary benefits and not for any other purpose, to a Government servant whose increment falls due on the day following superannuation.

2) In the  references second and third cited above, presumption has been raised that the notional increment which accrue on the day following the date of superannuation   can   be   reckoned   for   calculation   of   terminal   leave   salary i.e. Encashment of Earned Leave and Unearned Leave on Private Affairs, at credit at the time of retirement.

3) I am to confirm the above presumption as the terminal leave salary is also a retirement benefit.

Yours faithfully,                 .
