During a particular block year, the dependent son of an officer
got a private employment. The Officer has intimated the office that his son got a private employment. After some period, he requests LTC
Advance for his son also, saying that at the time of submitting the LTC request, his son stands resigned from the private employment.

Once a dependant start earning and becoming independent for some period, and later under the pretext of resignation, preferring to become dependent as unemployed son (age 23 years) for the purpose of LTC whether admissible.

The argument put forth by the Officer is that at the time of
LTC request for advance, his son is not in gainful employment/employment. Also, the meaning of gainful employment is not clear.

I shall be grateful if the actual rule position is indicated please.

As per LTC Rules, the son should be unmarried and "wholly" dependant on the officer. Further, if the income of the son is less than Rs. 3500 pm then the son will be deemed to be wholly dependent on the Government servant.

So in my view, if the above conditions are met at the time of applying of advance and also while availing the LTC, then the concession would be admissible to the son.

In this case the GS is eligible for LTC for his son
