Leave Encashment Calculation

To understand leave encashment calculation let’s take an example.

Suppose Mr. X is retiring after 15 years of their service. He was entitled to 20 days of paid leave per annum from his organization, meaning he had 300 days of leave during her entire service to the company.

Out of this Mr. X has already utilized 125 days of paid leave. He is left with 175 days of unutilized paid leave.

Now as for his salary, he is drawing a basic salary plus a dearness allowance of 30,000 per month at the time of retirement.
Leave encashment is calculated based on the number of unutilized leaves multiplied by salary per day.

Salary per day= 30,000/30= ₹ 1,000 

Leave Encashment Received= 175*1,000=  ₹ 1,75,000

Thus Mr. X will receive an encashment of ₹ 1,75,000 as leave encashment.
