    A teacher without giving any information to the HM took his 3 leaves on 1st, 3rd & 5 March...Next, HM showcaused him. And the teacher gave a rude reply to that letter. After that, HM cut his 3 days Salary.
    Was that a right process which HM took?
    If there is any solution to this!

    Leave Sanctioning Authority may not grant "Un-authorized Absence", if the reply of the show cause notice is not satisfactory. It is also to be remembered that "Leave is not a matter of right".

    There are guidelines in the service rule for "treatment of un-authorized absence" and "willful absence from duty".

    Also as per West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (Conduct and Discipline of Teachers and Non-teaching Staff) Regulations, 2004, "Un-authorized absence to be treated as misconduct" which may be followed by Initiation of disciplinary proceedings. In such case of non-criminal misconduct, authority should give reasonable opportunity for rectification; however if the reply is not satisfactory then appropriate action may be taken by the authority which in such case is a "pay cut".

    Actually there was a bit temptation between the HM and that teacher since he was appointed . Don't know why! One day, before taking the permission of a leave, he phoned HM but he was misbehaved by HM. He was rudely told that he must not phone him to grant a leave. the teacher had no option as his mother was ill and hospitalized. Under such condition,HM asked him to furnish evidence as a supportive documents as he wanted to clear if he(the teacher) was lying or not.After that he felt insulted and the next time,he didn't take the permission of HM to take a leave. In his reply letter the teacher cited these facts.
    Would that teacher face break of service?
    How would this be entried on service book?

    Without pay does not mean break of service. But the situation is not good for both of them. If this situation will occur frequently then his/her date of increment will be affected in future.
