Hi,
My baby daughter (first at age 4 months and then at age 10 months) was treated at AIIMS with prior permission of the competent authority for both treatments. Both parents accompanied her for treatment and permission was availed by me to be her attendent for both ocassions. Journey was performed by train.
Now, TA bills are being limited by the DDO on the pretext that only one attendent is permissible with patient. My contention is since an infant is attached to mother all the time and for all the purposes, another attendant should be permitted. Also, the Govt. has to bear for only 2 tickets, which would normally have been the case had the patient not been an infant.
Kindly quote OM/rule, if possible.

Dear sir,
Pl. see this:
27.12 Travelling Allowance for medical treatment and attendance. The government employees and their family members are entitled to undertake journeys to take appropriate medical attendance and treatment, if it is certified by the AMA/Specialist/Medical Officer attached to the hospital to whom the patient was referred, that the journey was unavoidably necessary to obtain the treatment. The patient ( government servant or his family member ) and attendant also (wherever recommended) will be entitled to TA plus DA for the period of journey undertaken by rail, road, sea and air. No DA will be admissible for halt. The government servant is eligible for reimbursement of the travelling expenses of the donor of a kidney to him or to a member of his family for the journeys made in connection with the transplantation.

Thanks. The requisite certificate was obtained. This should serve the purpose.
