LTC Entitlements of new recruit employees in Central Government services

LTC Entitlements of new recruit employees in Central Government services…

We have some important information collected from various sources for the employees who are newly appointed in Central Government services. The clairifications are given as the type of ‘question and answers’ for easy understanding of CCS LTC Rules…

Question 1. What are the LTC entitlements of a Fresh Recruit?
Answer: Fresh recruits to the Central Government are allowed to travel to their home town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and to any place in India on the fourth occasion. This facility shall be available to the fresh recruits only for the first two blocks of four years applicable after joining the Government for the first time.

Question 2. How are the two blocks of four years applied to the Fresh Recruit?
Answer: The first two blocks of four years shall apply with reference to the initial date of joining the Government service even though the Govt. servant may change the job within the Government subsequently. However, as per Rule 7 of CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988, the LTC entitlement of a fresh recruit will be calculated calendar year wise with effect from the date of completion of one year of regular service.

Question 3. Are the LTC blocks of four years in respect of Fresh Recruits same as the regular blocks like 2010-13, 2014-17?
Answer: No. The first two blocks of four years of fresh recruits will be personal to them.
On completion of eight years of LTC, they will be treated at par with other regular LTC beneficiaries as per the prescribed blocks like 2014-17, 2018-21 etc.

Question 4. If a fresh recruit does not avail LTC facility in a particular year, can he/ she avail it in the next year?
No. Carryover of LTC to the next year is not allowed in case of a fresh recruit as he is already entitled to every year LTC. Hence, if a fresh recruit does not avail of the LTC facility in any year, his LTC will deem to have lapsed with the end of that year.

Question 5. How will the LTC entitlements of a Fresh Recruit be exercised after the completion of eight years of service?
Answer: (a) After the completion of eight years of service, when the next LTC cycle of fresh recruit coincides with the beginning of the second two year block (eg. 2016-17) of the running four year block (2014-17), he will be eligible only for ‘Home Town’ LTC if he/she has availed ‘Any Place in India’ LTC in the eighth year. Cases, where the new LTC cycle of fresh recruit coincides with the second year of the running two year block (ex. 2017 of 2016-2017), he will not be eligible for LTC in that year. Refer illustrations 1 & 3 for further explanation.

 

(b) At the end of the eighth year of LTC, when the new LTC cycle of a fresh recruit
coincides with the beginning of a regular four year block, his entitlement in the
regular block will be exercised as per the usual LTC Rules. Refer illustration 2.

 

Question 6. How will the LTC entitlement computed in case of a fresh recruit joining the service on 30 December of any year?
Answer: A fresh recruit who joins the Government service on 31 51December of any year, will be eligible for LTC w.e.f. 31 stDecember of next year. Since, 31 51December is the last date of a calendar year, his first occasion of LTC ends with that year.
Hence, he may avail his first Home Town LTC on the last day of that year. From next year onwards he would be eligible for the remaining seven LTCs. Refer illustration 3.

 

Question 7. How will the entitlements of a fresh recruit be computed who has joined the Govt. service before 01.09.2008? 
Answer: A fresh recruit who has joined Government service before 01.09.2008 (i.e before the introduction of this scheme) and has not completed his first eight years of service as on 01.09.2008 will be eligible for this concession for the remaining
time-period till the completion of first eight years of his/ her service. Refer illustration 4.

 

Question 8. Can a fresh recruit whose Home Town and Headquarters are same, avail LTC to Home Town?
Answer: No. A fresh recruit whose Home Town and Headquarters are same, cannot avail LTC to Home Town. He may avail LTC to any place in India on the fourth and eighth occasion only. As per Rule 8 of CCS (LTC) Rules, 1988, LTC to Home Town shall be admissible irrespective of the distance between the Headquarters of the Govt. servant and his Home Town which implies that Headquarters and Home Town should be at different places.

Will Air Travel Concession for Central Government Employees be Extended?

Will Air Travel Concession for Central Government Employees be Extended?

Will Air Travel Concession for all categories of Central Government Employees (not entitiled to travel by Air on LTC) be Extended for further two years..?

Will the air travel concession given to Central Government employees to travel to tourism spots in Jammu and NER areas be extended?

Will the concession, which was being granted upto April 30(for NER) and June 16, 2014(J&K), be extended by another two years?

Will the new BJP Government continue to implement the concession which was offered by the previous Congress Government?

Will this scheme be available at least for those employees who didn’t avail of this concession before?

Will this air travel concession be given to travel to either Jammu or NER region?

Will this concession, being given in order to develop areas that have been identified as most backward, continue?

 

Questions like these continue to buzz in the midst of Central Government employees. As of now there are no indications that the concession would be extended. There are also no reports of any ministerial debates or discussions over this issue.

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that the scheme, which offered air travel concession to all the Central Government employees, with exception to higher officials, gave social status to many.

Irrespective of these, the families of employees who had availed of this facility are bound to thank the Government for this opportunity!

[A Jammu-based newspaper reported that on June 18, the Union Ministry of Tourism extended the concession for further two years. It is totally unconfirmed till now. As and when orders regarding the extension are published by Dopt, the orders will be published in our website immediately.]

Leave Travel Concession – Air Travel concession ends today…

Leave Travel Concession – Air Travel concession ends today…

Concession of Air travel, which the Central Government employees have been enjoying for the past 6 years, comes to an end today. It is saddening to see that a scheme, that was so popular and enjoyed by all across ranks, has come to an end.

Travelling by airplane with the entire family is still not an ordinary feat for the majority of Indians. It therefore comes as no surprise that the ones who didn’t utilize this opportunity are regretting it.
For countless Central Government employees who completed a year in service and took their parents and siblings on a plane journey, it will be a memory worth cherishing for a very long time.

Former employees, who had served for 30-40 years but didn’t enjoy this facility, sure have their regrets. No matter how sophisticated and comfortable buses, trains and ships are, they can’t quite match the thrill of travelling by air.

There are no indications yet that the scheme could be extended, but one can be sure only after the 2014-15 General Budget is presented.

LTC – Will Air Travel Continue for the Next 2 Years?

LTC – Will Air Travel Continue for the Next 2 Years?

LEAVE TRAVEL CONCESSION
Will Air Travel Continue for the Next 2 Years?
For a number of years, Central Government employees have been enjoying the benefits of Leave Travel Concession (LTC). When a Central Government employee is employed at a place that is not his home town, then, once every two years or twice every four years, he/she is eligible to reimburse the travel expenses incurred for travelling to and back, along with the entire family.
BLOCK YEAR consists of four years. The current block year runs from 2010 to 2013. This is divided into two – 2010-11 and 2012-13, and concession to travel to the home town is offered twice.  Instead of two trips to home town, the employee is eligible to convert one of them as ALL INDIA LTC concession. Those who haven’t availed of the concession of the 2012-13 year block can utilize it in 2014.
Depending on their designation, the employees are eligible to utilize air, ship, rail and road transportation facilities, along with the travel class.
In the year 2010, in order to develop Jammu & Kashmir and North-East Region, it was announced that Central Government employees are eligible to travel to these regions via air from Delhi and Kolkata respectively. It was also announced that the travel expenses could be claimed in advance. Following this announcement, Central Government employees have started travelling via air, along with their families. From the HEADQUARTERS, where they are employed, they have to travel to New Delhi or Kolkata by train and go to Shri Nagar or Gauhati by airplane.
This concession is given in two categories, on the basis of grade pay. Those with GP higher than Rs. 4200 and above are eligible to travel from the airport nearest to their work headquarters. Those with GP lesser than Rs. 4200 will have to travel to Delhi or Kolkata by train and continue only the rest of the journey by airplane.
These concessions were initially announced for only two years and then extended to 2013. Each BLOCK YEAR can be carried forward to one year, i.e., those who haven’t utilized the facility in 2012-13 BLOCK YEAR can avail of it until December 2014.

This wonderful opportunity will draw to a close very soon. The Government has issued permission to travel by air to the NORTH-EAST REGION until 30.04.2014 and to JAMMU & KASHMIR until 17.06.2014. 

Question is – Will this concession be extended for the next two years?

Relaxation for LTC travel by air to visit Jammu and Kashmir – Expected order from Dopt

Relaxation for LTC travel by air to visit Jammu and Kashmir – Expected order from Dopt

Relaxation for LTC travel by air to visit Jammu and Kashmir may be extended

The Central Government Employees had a great Opportunity to visit Jammu and Kashmir by Air through conversion of Home Town LTC. The family members of Central Government Servants, who visited this beautiful state which is named after the Heaven of Earth, enjoyed it very much as it was a wonderful Experience for them. All the dependents  of the Central Government Employees were excited for not only visiting this state, but the mode of journey they were entitled from their duty station or from Delhi/Amritsar to go to this lovely state is an experience like a dream come true. Each and every one who visited Jammu and Kashmir by availing this Concession are very much grateful to the Central Government and it will make them feel pride being a part of Government Service.

As the last date of this concession for conversion of Home town LTC/ All India LTC to go to Jammu and Kashmir by Air closes by 18th June 2012, the central government employees, those who are not availing this LTC to Jammu and Kashmir Concession before this due date, are feeling misfortune when they were hearing their colleges Jammu Experience. So they should not be let down and they are eagerly expecting that the Government should however extend the relaxation for LTC to Jammu and Kashmir for further Two more years beyond 18th June 2012.

Sources close to the Government told that Relaxation for LTC travel by air to visit Jammu and Kashmir may be extended for further two more years beyond 18th June 2012 and necessary order will be issued soon.
