2. Government have reviewed the position and order that the Government Orders read above stand cancelled subject to the following guide lines:-

In other words, the officers will forfeit the service benefits that have accrued to them prior to their proceeding on Leave Without Allowance and they will be deemed as new entrants to Government service on return from Leave Without Allowance. What is protected is only the right to rejoin service in the same cadre as if they are new entrants.

(iii) The vacancy arising due to such grant of Leave Without Allowance shall be filled up, and the officers who enter on Leave Without Allowance shall not be permitted to rejoin duty before the expiry of sanctioned term of Leave Without Allowance.
3. Necessary modification to Kerala Service Rules will be issued separately.
