dear members
i am a serving defence officer.... however in the ambiguity that persist and no 'OFFICIAL' carrier available, is there a means by which one can avail LTC for Shri Amarnath shrine ?. May I request the members to quote any authority/ leave rule etc which may come in handy.

PS Couple of years back some kind of LTC provison was made for Andaman & Nicobar Islands and also for J&K (Srinagar).

Regular Bus Services from SriNagar to Baltal/Pahalgaon on scheduled teriff are available during yatra season. One can claim LTC by Bus upto Baltal/Pahalgaon, which one has shortest distance, and from Baltal/Pahalgaon you can claim horse/pony for which scheduled rates are also available.

Alternatevely, if your elegibility permits you can also use helicopter service from SriNagar to the Shrine. I think they operates under the Government Permit. Probably Pawan Hans has a service from SriNagar to the Shrine.
