View Full Version : TA on tour

16-07-2010, 08:57 PM
Dear G-connectors,

I am an official working in a CG department drawing a grade pay of 4200/-. My work involves visit to farmers field and rendering technical advisory and processing claims of farmers pertaining subsidies in force. Some of my colleagues say that for claiming TA for field visits as stipulated in 6th CPC (with food bills) one should perform tour not exceeding 12 hours otherwise the food charges would be restricted to 70% of the claim and they also say that if the tour is below 6 hours, I am not eligible for TA benefits. Meanwhile, some say the timings does not have any relevance for claiming TA as per new scheme

Which is correct. Can anybody guide me.

DA Calculation

absence not exceeding 6 hours : nil
absence exceeding 6 hours but not exceeding 12 hours : 70%
absence exceeding 12 hours: 100%

TA Calculation

Full TA as per your entitlement irrespective of timing is authorised .

That also was my contention. The authorities have agreed with it. Thank you very much for timely reply.
