Terminal leave is designed to assist resettlement and is to be granted to qualifying Service personnel on completion of service.
Service personnel are to be granted 20 working days’ terminal leave on completion of their commission/engagement. Also, although it is a concession at the Commanding Officer’s (CO) discretion, terminal leave should normally be granted to Service personnel leaving prematurely (eg. on PVR, pregnancy or compassionate reasons).
Terminal leave, however, is not normally to be granted to Service personnel whose service is terminated prematurely for misconduct.
Terminal leave is to be granted, where possible, in the last 20 days of paid service.
