Dear Friends,

As rightly pointed out, the concession of air travel to NER can be availed only once by conversion of one block of home town LTC. Those who have not so far availed the concession are permitted to avail the facility during the extended period of two years.

There seems to be a grave misconception that NE ltc relaxation can be availed only once, the order is clearly stating that one can convert only one home town block into ltc for ne, but there is no bar in avaling ne ltc against all india ltc with above relaxation,that means one can effectively travel three times to NE area under these special rules.
Restricting these benefit only for one time will only defeat government purpose of extending above benefit for further two years and promoting tourism in NE,which I think is not the intend of above orders.

Dear Friends,

Undisputedly the objective of the concession extended is to promote tourism in NER and encourage the employees to visit NER. In principle there should be no restriction on number of visits to NER. Similarly the employees whose place of duty and home town being the same are also not able to avail the benefit of the concession.

The wordings of the executive order and the clarification issued by the administrative Ministry subscribe to the views that (i) the concession is admissible only once and (ii) the concession can be availed only on conversion of one block of HT LTC if admissible.

The authorities who implement the orders prefer to stick to the language of the order in cases of such ambiguity rather than getting entangled into its objectives.
