The cash equivalent of Leave Salary shall be calculated in the following manner in all cases:

Cash Equivalent = (Band Pay + G.Pay + D.PAY + D.A.+ M.A.) x Number of E.L./30.

I have not yet seen relevant G.O. after ROPA 2009 regarding this.
I have already prepared the bill after your confirmation in this matter. Thanks & Regards!
You are much welcome.

I have not yet seen relevant G.O. after ROPA 2009 regarding this.
I would like to add that following the introduction of 'West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008', M.A. of Rs. 300/- is not to be taken into account in case of an employee who was a member of the scheme.
Q: Reference of D.Pay after ROPA, 2009 is not clear.
@ A Ray, yes, you are right. MA is NIL for the employees who have opted WBHS.

D.Pay is also NIL after ROPA '09.
Leave Encashment—{Rule 168A, 168B & 168C of W.B.S.R. Part-I)

No. 3453-F dt. 28.3.2001. Power to sanction leave encashment has since been delegated to Head of Office. (No. 4794F dt. 6.5.94 )

An employee who retires while on suspension will be eligible to leave encashment, if the suspension was wholly unjustified.

An employee who retires by giving notice to Govt. or is retired by Govt. by giving him notice or pay and allowances in lieu thereof will get leave encashment in respect of EL and also half pay leave at credit provided the total period of such leave does not exceed his normal date of retirement. An employee who retires on invalidation from service is also entitled to leave encashment on the same principle but temporary employees are not entitled to half-pay leave facility.

If leave salary for half-pay leave component fails short of pension and other pensionary benefits, cash equivalent for half-pay leave shall not be granted. (because pensionary benefits are deducted from half-pay leave).

In case an employee resigns or quits from service, he will be granted leave encashment for a period not exceeding half the E.L. due not exceeding 150 days. Cash Equivalent = ( Pay + DA + MA }/30 X Unutilized Earned Leave subject to a maximum of 300 days.)

No HRA, Hill Allowance. Fixed T. A. etc. is admissible. The same may be drawn under the head “2071-Pension and other retirement benefits – 01-Civil-115-leave encashment benefit (FA)-04 Pension and Gratuity” (GO No. 1863-F dt. 15.2.2001)

Cash equivalent of leave salary in case of death in service of a Government employee shall be paid to his family. The term family in this rule shall mean and include the following: (1) Wife or husband as the case may be, (2) minor sons and miner unmarried daughters including adopted sons/daughters, (3) dependent mother. (4) dependent father.
