Dear Friend,

Unfortunately there is no order available in your favour. In all cases of air travel, the present rules prescribe that one has to travel only by Air India if Government has to bear the cost of air passage (limited to LTC 80 fare in the case of LTC).

Is that LTC-80 ticket is mandatory?
Any Economic Class ticket either more less charge than LTC ticket of Indian Airlines is sufficient for LTC. Because in our organisation some one in the accounts informed me that only LTC-80 ticket is valid, any other ticket either or more or less fare than LTC-80 of Indian airlines are not enough. Can you help me with base of OMs, so that I can question him.

Sir,

What about an official who travels on duty?

I had to attend a training programme at Pondicherry during vacation in October 2009. Due to medical emergency of my mother, I travelled from Pune to Chennai by Jet airways to be present in time. I am not entitled to airfare. But I have not been paid even the entitled II AC fare. Please let me know if I can represent against this.

I Dont eagree with tvenkatam because refered O.M.Dated 9th sept 2009 says only that
"the expenses on air travel while availing of the Leave Travel Concession by Government servants will be restricted to the cost of travel by the economy class, irrespective of entitlement,[/B]"
it never say that "the Leave Travel Concession by Government servants will be restricted to the cost of travel up to fare of LTC 80"
so in my view the actul meaning and sprit of O.M. Dated 9th sept 2009 is "that the Leave Travel Concession by Government servants will be restricted up to Any Economic Class ticket either more less charge than LTC ticket of Indian Airlines is sufficient for LTC"

As per Sixth pay commission recommendations, those drawing grade pay of Rs.5400 and above are entitled to travel by Air. As per LTC orders 2.05.2008 and 14.05.2008 Group A and B officers [Gazetted and Non-Gazetted] are entitled to tranvel by Air on LTC to NER. However, as per Govt. order dated 11.03.2010 clarifies that restriction of travel by Air India only need not apply to non entitled officers who travel by air and claim LTC reimbursement by entitled class of Rail. Please see the orders: http://www.persmin.nic.in/writedata/CircularNotification/ScanDocument/31011_2_2006-Estt.%28A%291.pdf From this it is very clear that those who are entitled to travel by air, on claiming LTC they have to travel by Air India only.

Dear Friend,

All air journeys are to be performed only by National Airlines if the airfare is to be claimed. In case of journey by private airlines the claim will be restricted to entitlement by train.

Dear Sir, Thanks for the reply but if the reimbursement is to be restricted by entitled train fare, what about state like Manipur, Arunachal, Mizoram etc where there is no trains ?

Dear Sir,
Group 'C' & 'D' employees are entitled to travel by Air from Guwahati or Kolkata to NER as per Govt. order dated 02.05.2008. Hence they have to travel by Air India only and not by private airlines. Restriction of travel by 'Air India only' need not apply to non-entitled class officers who travel by Air and claim LTC reimbrusement by entilted class of Rail as per Govt order dated 11.03.2010.

Dear friend,

Please do not rely on old orders. As per new orders dated 27.07.2009 whether LTC (including NER) or official tour (both domestic & International) journey by air is admissible only if performed by National Airlines. Subsequent to this it was clarified that the claim of non-entitled officials when avail the services of private airlines would be limited to the entitlement by rail.

As per OM dated 2/5/2008 & 14/5/2008 govt. employees can travel by air to Bagdogra for visiting Sikkim. So you can also travel by air up to Bagdogra. However, it is not clear as to how the claim will be restricted since you are a Group C official. Probably the pro-rata method will be used to split the distance betwen Delhi and Bagdogra in the same ratio as Delhi-Kolkata and Kolkata-Bagdogra and calculate the amount admissible.

I suggest you ring up Estt.(A) Section, DOPT (You can get no. from Tel. No. 23092313) and clear your doubts.
