In an effort to increase efficiency and streamline processes, the state information technology and communications department has developed an online leave management module for government employees under the integrated Raj e-office.
The leave management module will help automate the leave process of employees of state government departments and PSUs. Under this, employees can now apply for leave online and the records will no longer be maintained manually.
The facility however will initially be available only for IAS officers and would later be extended to other levels.
Using this application, IAS officers will be able to apply for leave (earned leave, half-pay leave and commuted leave) online and also approve leaves of officers working under them.
The leave approval hierarchy has been configured in the system based on different specific types of leave and an employee, before applying for a leave will have to ensure that the leave balance is updated in the computer.
Based on the leave type, relevant forms will be made available for furnishing requisite details. A user can view the holiday list and also avail permission from the headquarters if he or she is required to travel.
The user is also given the option to propose other officials to whom additional charge can be assigned during his/her leave period. They can also attach relevant document as support document for availing leaves.
