I am entitled for 2AC travel having G.P. 4600.
I was on LTC from Delhi to Bangalore. On my journey from Delhi, I traveled by Rajdhani 2AC and took a break at Hyderabad. From Hyderabad, I traveled to bangalore in 3AC by Bangalore Superfast Exp. On my return journey from Bangalore to Delhi, as there was no 2AC available in Rajdhani, I travelled by 3AC.
Now my question is, how I would be reimbursed my fare? My office has just straight way given me double the 3AC fare of Rajdhani of one side from Delhi to Bangalore.
Kindly provide me your valuable inputs.

For return journey the 3AC fare will be reimbursable. For outward journey, the following provision available in LTC Rules, will be applicable:


LTC when journey performed by longer route

(1) When a Government servant or any member of his family performs the journey by a longer route (which is not the cheapest) in two different classes of railway accommodation, the entitled class rate will be admissible for the corresponding proportion of the shortest or the cheapest route and the lower class rate for the remaining mileage by such route.

Example.- If the total distance by the longer route is 1,100 miles and that by the shortest route is 1,000 miles and if the Government servant concerned has travelled the initial 800 miles by II Class and the remaining 300 miles by I Class, Government’s share of reimbursement of the expenditure incurred in this case should be as follows:-

(i) Mileage for which II Class fare will be admissible-

Distance actually travelled by II Class X Total distance by the shortest route
Total distance by the longer route

= 800 X1,000 =727 miles (roundly)
1,100

ii) Mileage for which II Class fare will be admissible-

Distance actually travelled by I Class X Total distance by the shortest route
Total distance by the longer route

= 300 X1,000 =273 miles (roundly)
1,100
