The Chief Minister after holding discussions with the Department concerned approved the amendments as per which only a person, who has worked as an eligible Extension Lecturer for at least one semester/90 days in one academic year but was relieved due to less workload/due to joining of regular Assistant/Associate Professor by way of transfer/deputation or fresh appointment may be adjusted and may be considered as ‘Displaced Extension lecturer’.

In case he does not avail the leave within the prescribed period that leave will not lapse and he may avail the same at any time in the same year.
