Central govt employees will not get daily allowances to travel in LTC


The new rule will be effective from July 1, 2017.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has amended the Leave Travel Concession (LTC) for the Central government employees. They will not get daily allowance on Leave Travel Concession (LTC).

The statement issued by the DoPT reads that any incidental expenses and the expenditure incurred on local journeys shall not be admissible under LTC.

However, employees who travel by premium or Suvidha trains and services, such as Tatkal scheme, will now be allowed on LTC. Also, reimbursement of Tatkal charges or premium Tatkal charges will be admissible for the purpose of LTC.

Employees need to keep in mind that reimbursement for the purpose of LTC will be admissible for journeys undertaken in government-operated vehicles or any corporation in the public sector run by the central or state government or a local body.

However, if a journey is undertaken between two places, which are not connected by any public transport, the employees will be allowed reimbursement for a journey of maximum 100km covered by the private or personal transport, based on self-certification.

The new rule will be effective from July 1, 2017.

The Flexi fare applicable in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains will be admissible for travel done by these trains on LTC. However, this flexi fare component will not be admissible in case of a non-entitled government servant travelling by air and claiming reimbursement for the entitled class of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains.
