The Chairman

Departments/Centres/Units

Dear Sir,

I am pleased to forward herewith the guidelines for visits abroad by Faculty/Scientific staff which are currently being followed at the Institute.

It may please be noted that prior approval of the Director is necessary for all members of staff to undertake any foreign visit whether on private affairs or on academic affairs.

I request you to bring the guidelines to the attention of all the Faculty/Scientific staff members in the Department/Centre/Unit.

Yours faithfully,

Sd/-

Registrar

Encl: as above.

GUIDELINES

VISITS ABROAD BY FACULTY/SCIENTIFIC STAFF

 

The leave of absence for visits abroad including the proposed leave of absence in respect of all faculty and scientific staff will be treated as follows:

I. (a) Symposia/Conference/Workshops/Seminars:

    1. Visits to Universities/Laboratories/Institutions:
    1. for lectures and discussion
    1. for research programme on individual collaboration basis
    1. on Exchange Programmes supported by the Government of India (INSA, UGC, MHRD, DST, DBT, CSIR etc.)
    1. on Exchange Programmes supported by the Government of India through the Centre for Sponsored Schemes and Projects

e.g. Indo-US, Indo-French, Indo-Japan

  1. on Exchange Programmes supported by IISc MOUs

(These programmes (b) (iii) to (v) should have a bilateral content).

Duty Leave up to a maximum of six months in a seven year period or Vacation Abroad/Earned Leave/EOL.

  1. Sabbatical Leave: Sabbatical leave may be availed of only upto a maximum of one year (inclusive of one vacation) provided the staff member has completed six years of service immediately preceding the proposed sabbatical leave. EOL availed of during the preceding period would not qualify for reckoning the number of completed years of service.

The faculty should have at least one year of service after return from sabbatical leave.

III. General considerations:

      1. At any point of time, not more than one third of the faculty on roll in the department will be permitted for any of the above leave of absence.
      1. The staff member proceeding abroad during the vacation will be generally treated as availing vacation abroad for the purpose indicated above. During the academic term they will be granted Duty leave/Earned leave/EOL as applicable.
    1. Faculty are expected to provide sufficient notice (at least four weeks time) before actually proceeding on any of the above visits abroad.

IV. Overriding considerations:

The grant of leave of any kind will be subject to the following conditions:

      1. A ceiling limit of two years of all types of leave of absence including sabbatical leave in a seven year period.
    1. Leave of absence of any kind above either singly or in combination with one another shall not exceed 15 months at a time subject to the ceilings indicated above. However, in case a staff member has availed of either vacation or any other kind of leave of absence amounting to a total of not more than one year during a 12 year period, he may be permitted to avail sabbatical leave for one year and other kinds of leave (Earned Leave/EOL) for another one year in conjunction.
