Note 3.: If a railway servant immediately before his retirement or death while in service had been absent from duty on extraordinary leave, or had been under suspension, the period whereof does not count as service,   the   emoluments   which   he   drew   immediately   before proceeding  on such leave or being placed under suspension  shall be the emoluments for the purposes of this rule.

Provided that any increase in pay (other than the increment referred to in Note 3) which is not actually drawn shall not form part of his emoluments.

Note 2: If during the last ten months of his service, a railway servant had been absent from duty on extraordinary leave, or had been under suspension the period whereof does not count as service, the aforesaid period of leave or suspension shall be disregarded in the calculation of the average emoluments and equal period before the ten months shall be included.
