dated:- 15/09/2011
Sub:- Requirement of LTC-80 Certificate

   It has come to the notice of the HQrs office that some audit offices under the jurisdiction of PCsDA/CsDA are insisting on the requirement of LTC-80 certificate when the Air entitled officials are paying airfare for traveling on LTC in Air India which happens to be less than the LTC-80 fares.
   The matter has been examined in the HQrs office and it is stated that requirement of LTC-80 certificate may not be insisted upon. The LTC fares are promulgated on official Air India Website periodically and the same can be downloaded through URL to deal with such  cases. The recent fare revision for LTC is updated on 01st Sept’ 2011.
   The onus lies with the audit authorities to keep the LTC rates updated which is revised from time to time by Air India authorities and make payments accordingly.

   2. References are being received in this Department seeking clarification for admissibility of LTC claims of Government officials in cases where the air fare paid for travel by Air India happens to be less than LTC-80 class of Air India. It is clarified that reimbursement of air fare lower than LTC-80 air fare of Air India will also be admissible for journeys performed by Air India under LTC as the intention is to ensure that the LTC claim should not in any case , exceed LTC-80 fare of Air India.

Central Govt. Employees, avail LTC for the block 2006-2009, Book Tickets, Time is running out..

December 10, 2010 Leave a comment

   This is to remind the Central employees that the Block Year 2006-2009 with grace period of 2010 is less than a month away to lapse. Those are yet to avail the chance should act NOW. The journey is to be initiated within midnight of 31stDecember 2010.

   Now the sixth pay commission made the holiday more enjoyable with 10 day’s encashment of Basic and Grade Pay with LTC. This will be available for six times in the total service life. So if you do not have ample service left, you are going to loose the same by not availing LTC for the block year.

   There are several options of traveling by air in Govt expenses to North East and Jammu and Kashmir elaborately described in earlier posts.
So hurry, act now. It may be a real Miss

Thanks to –  Paycommission update
