    Yes this is admissible. Kindly refer to OM dated 4.3.2011 in this regard (http://finmin.nic.in/the_ministry/de..._04mar2011.pdf).

    But then, that particular day's LTC-80 fare has to be furnished and certified by AI. Otherwise, there's an old circular that is very popular with DDOs (who swear by that) and restrict airfares.

    The favourite LTC-80 fares can be downloaded from 90paisa.blogspot.com. Even a google search 'latest ltc 80 circular or airfare' will yield the result. But then, without the Air India stamp, that airfare cited in the circular shall hold good.
    As for your question"How to get LTC 80 fare & that too for a particular day?": A letter has to be written to the Manager or whosoever is responsible at the AI Office requesting him for that day's LTC-80 fare. But, please remember that without the Air India stamp on the ticket, that airfare cited in the circular shall hold good.
    regards
    Amit

    But Pathaksa'ab, our DDO has declined such payments citing that particular circular. Can you pls send me a copy of the rules so that a host of my colleagues may be benefited to my email id [email protected]?
