Is sandwich rule applicable for LOP’s or only for EL
If we hire a consultant and not a contract employee then also the same leave structure will be applicable?
i.e He/She will be providing us the consultancy for a period of 11/12 months.

Yes , the same implies to a consultant too.
The sandwich rule is applicable to all the leaves. However, it also depends on the organization like they want to apply to all leave type or only specific leave.
SL , CL , PL OR C.OFF AND ALSO SANDWICH CONSIDER

Hope you are referring to Fixed term contract (FTC).
The code on social security has come up with a definition (new codes are not yet implemented but it will eventually)
Also sharing a detailed
paper by Legal Firm, Nishith Desai Associates on FTC.
So once the new codes are in place, FTCs are also eligible for same set of benefits -i.e people working in similar roles irrespectrive of FTC or Permanent.
So suggest to seek expert legal advice on the topic before hiring.
