    LTC(Leave Travel Concession) Regarding Full Details

    LTC(Leave Travel Concession) Regarding Full Details:: There are changes to the Leave Travel Concession(LTC) that Central Government employees receive for travel to their hometown or other parts of the country. There are new rules on the air travel entitlement for level 6 and 8 officers of the Pay Matrix.

    Leave Travel Concession (LTC) is granted to Central Government employees for travel to various parts of the country and home as well. The number of home travel visits allowed are two. This is made available every four years. One of the hometown visits can be substituted with an “All India visit”, if needed. LTC is not available for employees whose spouses work in the Indian Railways.


    LTC(Leave Travel Concession) Regarding The following conditions are also to be noted:

    • There will be no daily allowance for travel through LTC.
    • All incidental expenses incurred on local journeys would not be reimbursed.
    • Reimbursement under LTC is allowed only for journeys that are performed in government vehicles or Corporation vehicles in the public sector.
    • If the journey undertaken is between places that are not connected through public transport, the employee will be allowed reimbursement according to his/her entitlement for journey on transfers. The maximum limit for the same will, however, be 100 km covered by the private transport vehicle. The employee will have to self-certify the claim and submit it. All expenses beyond the upper limit will be borne by the employee.
    • Travel through Premium, Premium Tatkal, or Suvidha trains will be allowed under LTC. The reimbursement of Tatkal or Premium Tatkal charges are also provided for the LTC purpose.
    • Flexi fare applicable on Shatabdi, Rajdhani, or Duronto trains will be allowed if the travel is performed by these trains on LTC. This component of dynamic fare will not be applicable if a non-entitled government employee travels by air and raises a claim subsequently.
    • The rules in the O.M. will be effective from 1 July 2017.

    There have been several demands to increase the number of times LTC can be availed, particularly for the “All India” visits. There are requests to extend the LTC to foreign countries as well.

    Employees working on islands have raised requests to split the hometown LTC, so that it would be possible to visit families once a year and vice versa. Officers working in Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) have requested for Additional LTC such as that offered to Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs).

    Railway employees and officers whose spouses are railway employees have indicated that there are several places that are not connected by rail and visits to these places cannot be scheduled due to the non-availability of LTC. Hence, it was requested to allow the necessary changes to mitigate this issue.

    There were requests to split the hometown LTC for employees posted in Ladakh, North East, and Island territories such as Andaman, Nicobar, and Lakshadweep. This would help employees in meeting their families more often.

    Demands were also raised for defense forces placed at high altitude, field, and CI Ops regions to be granted an additional free railway warrant. This was also requested to be extended to CAPF personnel and Indian Coast Guards.
