All employees of Government eligible for LTC may avail the package tours of IRCTC for LTC journeys. The claim will, however, be limited to the fare of entitled class of accommodation when the journey is performed in higher class including air journey. In the case of air journey, it is immaterial whether the journey is by Air India or other airlines as long as the package is offered by IRCTC which is also a quasi Government venture similar to Air India.

Dear Shri Venkatam ji
Every thing is correct except that travel may be done in any airlines. It is clearly mentioned in that circular that travel should be in Air India only even in the tour package offered by IRCTC.
