OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Admissibility of air fare for children below the age of 5 years of the Government servants non-entitled to travel by air on LTC – clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to Department of Personnel Training’s O.M. No. 31011/2/2006-Estt.A dated 24.4.2006, 21.05.2007 and 03.12.2007 which stipulates that a non-entitled Goverment servant is allowed to travel by air while availing LTC provided that the reimbursement made in such cases is restricted to the train fare of entitled class. In this regard, it may be noted that while no fare is charged by Railways for a child below the age of 5 years travelling by train, airlines charge full air fare for child of 2 years of age and above.

2. This Department is in receipt of references from various Ministries/Departments seeking clarification on reimbursement of LTC claim in a situation where a child of a non-entitled Government servant, aged less than 5 years, travels by air on LTC and entitled train fare is claimed by that Government employee in respect of his/her child.

3. The matter has been examined and it is clarified that since children below the age of 5 years are not charged for rail journeys, no reimbursement shall be made in respect of the air journey performed by children, aged less than 5 years, of the Government servants who are not entitled to travel by air on LTC. It may be noted that this provision shall not be applicable for the segments where the air journey has been allowed to the non-entitled Government servants and their families under the special dispensation scheme, existent from time to time.

Dated October 31,2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Journey to Headquarters on LTC in respect of dependent family members of  the Government servant – Clarification – reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No. 31011/14/86-Estt.(A-1V) dated 08.05.1987, which inter alia provides that the Govt. servant and the members of the family may claim LTC independently, however, reimbursement in such cases will be restricted to the actual distance travelled by the family or the distance between the headquarters/place of posting of the Government servant and the place visited/hometown, whichever is less.

2. Restriction of reimbursement to the distance from the Headquarter/place of posting creates an anomalous situation where the Government servant seeks to avail of LTC in respect of members of the family to the Headquarters/place of posting either from the Home town of the Government servant or from anywhere else. For illustration, a dependent child of a Govt. servant (posted in Delhi) staying and pursuing studies in Mumbai may visit a Government servant at his Headquarters/place of posting (i.e. Delhi) on LTC, however, reimbursement in such case shall be admissible for distance between the Headquarters and place of visit (which in this case is Headquarters itself), which shall be NIL in this case.

3.To resolve the issue, the matter has been considered by this Department in consultation with Joint Consultative Machinery – Staff side and Department of Expenditure. It is clarified that full reimbursement as per the entitlement of the Government servant shall be allowed for journey(s) performed on LTC by the family members from any place in India to Headquarters/place of posting of the Government servant and back. When such journey is performed from the Home Town, the LTC shall be counted against ‘Home Town’ LTC and in case the journey is from any other place in India, then it shall be counted against ‘Any place in India’ LTC.

4. The provisions of this OM (para 3) will have prospective effect.

5. Hindi version will follow.

2. It is not clear from the notes as to whether the clarification sought for is in respect of civilian Government employees in the Defence services or Defence personnel.

In case of civilian Government servant the clarification is provided as under:
Points of Doubts raised by PcsDA/ CsDs and Remarks/view of DoPT

1. Whether a physically disabled officer who travels by air/ train on Temporary Duty can make use of own/ hired taxi on LTC?
As per DoPT’s O.M. No. 31011/3/2009-Estt.(A) dated 28th October, 2009, such relaxation to travel by own car/ hired taxi is available to only those Govt. servants who on account of physical handicap of self or dependant family members is unable to perform the LTC journey by the authorized modes of transport and are compelled to undertake the journey by own car/ private taxi.
It is believed that a Govt. employee who is able to travel by air/ train on Temporary Duty, is capable of undertaking the journey by the same on LTC also.

2. Whether the amount should be restricted to Rail fare by shortest route or the physically challenged officer using own/ hired taxi on LTC who is otherwise entitled to travel by air (i.e. drandng grade pay of Rs.5400/- and above).
The amount admissible to the physically disabled Govt. servant shall not be more than admissible if the journey is performed by the entitled class of rail/air (as per his entitled mode) by the shortest route or the actual taxi fare whichever is less, provided that the source station and destination station are connected by these modes of transport.

3. Whether it would be appropriate to admit air fare on notional basis for non-existing air routes or shortest routes, like Pune-Mumbai, Delhi-Faridabad, Delhi-Mathura etc. for Physically challenged officer using own/ hired taxi on LTC?
No, Air fare cannot be admitted on notional that too for the non-existing air route. Where the source station and Destination station are not connected by train or air transport, the claim shall be regulated in terms of the Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No. 19030/3/2008-E.IV dated 23rd September, 2008 as per the mileage allowance for journeys performed by road in own car/taxi.
