Amount received on leaving a company or retirement for leave encashment is non-taxable upto below limits: 1. The actual amount received
2. The cash equivalent of leave balance (max 30 days per year of service)
3. Maximum of 10 months of leave encashment, based on last 10 months average salary
4. Rs. 3 Lakhs

There will be no income tax exemption in case of leave encashment in the middle of job (without resignation/retirement)
