2. However, need has been felt to circulate the advisory for general information/guidance of all the Departments. Accordingly, it is advised that the applications for grant of Station Leave Permission to visit outside the Country on Private Affairs shall be decided by the concerned Administrative Departments as under:
When a State Government employee intends to visit a foreign country on private affairs during the period of leave, prior permission of the competent authority to leave the Station is required. While deciding such applications, the concerned authority shall keep various factors in view. Permission may be denied in the interest of security. Individuals facing investigation/ inquiry on serious charges, who may try to evade apprehension by police authorities, or facing the inquiry, may also not be permitted to leave the country. However, the requests of employees shall be dealt with expeditiously and permission shall not be denied/ delayed in genuine & justified cases.
3. The Departments shall bring these instructions to the notice of their subordinate offices as well.
