Special leave not exceeding 30 days may be sanctioned for participation in sport events, cultural activities and mountaineering expeditions in any calender year. You may find the details in WBSR-I, Appendix-11.December 25, 2012 at 4:08 pm #76159

The above link provided for WBSR – I do not contain Appendix 11, unfortunately. You may download a scanned copy of the book from here: https://wbxpress.com/west-bengal-service-rules/
Note: The file size is 110MB, if you have any problem, then I can provide you only the related part of Appendix No. 11.December 25, 2012 at 4:47 pm #76165
The question is whether ‘doing a basic mountaineering course’ will mean ‘participation in mountaineering expeditions’ under the rule? Perhaps not.December 27, 2012 at 2:53 pm #76179
I am quoting the relevant part of WBSR – I, Appendix – 11.
3. Mountaineering Expeditions: Government employees participating in mountaineering expeditions may be granted special casual leave not exceeding 30 days in any one calender year subject to the following conditions:
(a) that the expeditions has the approval of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation; and
(b) there shall be no change in the overall limit of 30 days special casual leave for 1 calender year for participation in sporting event of National or International importance.
The period of absence in excess of 30 days should be treated as regular of the kind admissible under the leave rules applicable to the person concerned. For this purpose Government employees may be permitted as a special case to combine special casual leave with regular leave.December 28, 2012 at 1:54 am #76183
In the above noted reply (Rule 3 of Appendix 11 of WBSR Part – I) there is no clear mention of mountenearing course instead of mountenearing expedition. I think a mountenearing course could not be treated as mountenearing expedition.December 29, 2012 at 7:02 am #76202
I also think a mountaineering course and mountaineering expedition is not same one. And I saying about Mountaineering course which is the training before mountaineering expedition and under the approval of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation.December 29, 2012 at 11:24 am #76203
That’s why I feel that the special leave may not be sanctioned during the course. It may be sanctioned for expeditions.
