One of the officers visited North east by this route.
He is in 5400 grade pay (Hence eligible to travel by air)

Due to non-availability of air ticket from Chennai to Kolkata, he travelled Chennai to Bhubaneswar by air and then from Bhubaneswar to Kolkata by train. Shortest train route from Chennai to Kolkata train is via Bhubaneswar only. Hence it is not longer route.

Chennai to Kolkata LTC80 comes to around Rs.7100
Chennai to Bhubaneswar LTC80 fare comes to around Rs.7300

In this case he will get train fare for the journey kms between Kolkata and Bhubaneswar. And from Bhubaneswar to Chennai he will get air fare(kms). Since the air fare from kolkata and chennai is less his claim be restricted to direct flight rs 7100
