Who grants time allowances?

ART. 99. 

Who grants time allowances. – Whenever lawfully justified, the Director of the Bureau of Corrections, the Chief of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and/or the Warden of a provincial, district, municipal or city jail shall grant allowances for good conduct. Such allowances once granted shall not be revoked." (RA 10592)


The authority to grant time allowance for good conduct is exclusively vested in the Director. (e.g. provincial warden cannot usurp Director’s authority) - now amended by RA 10592

It is not an automatic right, and once granted, cannot be revoked by him.
