Question: Why will I get such a good deal for no reason?

Answer: There’s no better deal than serving your nation. We understand that grant of leave at eleventh hour makes a pre-planned travel less of possibility for a defense person. Moreover, high rates of air-tickets add up to the situation. We ask airlines to provide us their unsold inventory and sell it at a lower rate to defense.

Question: Why do you need my army/air force/ navy number? Can I suspect some foul play?

Answer: We need your army/air force/ navy number because we cannot validate the legitimacy of our customers otherwise. We strictly serve people from defense fraternity. Being army kids, we know the value of these numbers and therefore do not save it at our end.

Question: I am entering my defense number correctly yet your website is not accepting it. Why is it so?

Question: I do not have a suffix for my defense number. What to do?

Answer: This is one of the rare cases, please contact our customer care at 1800-123-9585.

Booking Tickets

Question: I received a mail telling me that there were no flights available for my registered sector and date. Why is it so?

Answer: Unfortunately, we do not have flights to some airports such as Kullu, Allahabad, Ranchi, Bhubaneshwar, Dimapur, Agartala, Vijaywada, Tutikorin, Hubli, Belgaum. If however, apart from these airports flights are not available, we are sorry. We might have sold all the tickets in your choice of flight.

Question: How can I pay for my ticket booking?

Answer: We provide various payment options like credit and debit cards, net banking, and wallets. You can also pay us offline at our centers. For further information, please Contact Us.

Question: Why did the fare change at purchase time?

Answer: udChalo.com uses a real-time reservation database, the same used by travel agents worldwide that lists actual ticket prices and availability. As airlines fill flights or change fares, the database immediately reflects those changes. Always be sure to double-check prices when reserving or purchasing tickets, as the fare may have changed since you first searched for fares or created your itinerary.

Question: I see options from just two airlines. Why are other airlines not present?

Answer: Our partner airlines might not have flights scheduled for the particular sector or may not have deals for that sector. Wait till we grow. We’ll have more airlines being added to the list soon. We would be adding few more airlines in 3-4 months to come.

Question: Why the fares are too high compared to other airlines?

Answer: There could be multiple reasons for the same, the most frequent being that the cheaper ticket might be of an indirect flight or the one having a long journey time. Also, the price indicated on other OTAs are exclusive of taxes while the one displayed on udChalo website is all inclusive.

Question: Is my credit card information secure?

Answer: We make every effort to keep all your personal information, including your credit card number, secure. udChalo.com uses the Secured Socket Layer (SSL) technology to allow your credit card number to be transimitted to us over the internet, if your browser supports this encryption. As you enter your credit card number, SSL encodes it so it is transmitted in a format that prevents eavesdropping or data theft. Once received by our secure server, your credit card number is never transmitted over the internet again.

Question: I do not want to pay online. What are the other options available?

Answer: You can pay by cash, cheque and/ or draft at our reservation counter. For further information, please Contact Us.

Question: How do I know my reservation is confirmed?

Answer: After we receive your payment, we will send you an immediate e-mail confirmation. This e-mail will include your itinerary details and e-tickets.

LTC claim on tickets

Question: Can I avail LTC claim on tickets booked via udChalo?

Answer: For Officers : Only tickets booked via pre approved travel agency e.g. Balmer lawrie, IRCTC and Air India are claimable.
For ORs/JCOs : All udChalo tickets which are marked as Defense Fares can be claimed via their respective PAO however, reimbursement in such cases shall be restricted to the fare of their entitled class of train/transport or actual expense, whichever is less, for further clarification you may chose to contact our customer care team.

Question: Why I see a fare difference in udChalo & airline’s issued tickets?

Answer: At times, you might find a difference between your ticket fares on airline website and udChalo. Since, we bring special fares from airlines, you might not be able to fetch it individually. The difference in the fare is utilized by udChalo to keep the Organization running and providing employment to ex- servicemen. No refund request will be taken in such cases. Also, our tickets are only for personal trips and LTC claim can be done at your own discretion.

Cancellation and Rescheduling

Question: What are the cancellation rules?

Answer: Post independence we stopped charging LAGGAN, therefore all the taxes are refundable for sure & our prices are so good that our base fare mostly do not cross cancellation charges levied by the airlines.

Question: How do I cancel a flight reservation?

Answer: Cancelling a flight booking you made on udChalo is as easy as pie. You need to drop an email at customercare@udchalo.com with your registered email ID & rest we will take care.

Question: Can I reschedule my journey?

Answer: Policies vary from airline to airline. To be safe, assume you cannot. You will need to contact the airline and invariably in every case you will need to pay the difference between the price of your booked ticket and the retail price of the other flight you wish to book along with some rescheduling charges. And it goes without saying, the odds are, you won’t get a special deal.

Question: What are the cancellation charges?

Answer: The cancellation charges depend on the airline, sector, class of booking, and time of cancellation. To know the exact amount you may contact us at 1800-123-9585. In most of the cases, our fares are less than cancellation charges hence you can only expect taxes to be refunded back.

Question: How long does it take to process a refund?

Answer: We usually process the refund within 3 working days of cancellation. However, in some cases, it may take upto 6 days to reflect in your account statement depending upon your bank.

Question: I still haven’t received my refund. Help!

Answer: We’re extremely sorry for the goof up. Immediately write an email to refunds@udchalo.com or chat with us.

Question: I booked my flights on udChalo but then cancelled them by directly contacting the airline. How do I claim my refund?

Answer: Inform us immediately after cancellation so that we can confirm with the airline to process your refund into your bank account.

Credit Note

Question: What happens if money has been deducted from my account, but the ticket has not been issued?

In this case, you are issued a credit note equivalent to the amount that has been deducted from your account. The amount in the credit note can be used for future flight bookings via udChalo.

Question: What is credit note? How do I avail my credit note amount?

A credit note is the amount instantly credited to you in case of booking failures. You will receive an email to your registered email address with the link to view your credit amount and credit note code. Once you open the link you are taken to the page of your credit note details.

Question: Can I get my credit note amount refunded to my bank account?

Yes, you may click on the credit note link sent to you on your registered email address and click on the refund button. The refund will take a minimum of 6 working days.

Question: What if my credit note amount does not match the cost of the flight I am currently trying to book?

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.

Leave Travelling Concession (LTC) and Travelling Settlement

Leave Travelling Concession (LTC) and Travelling Settlement

Free Thinker:

Leave Travelling Concession (LTC) and Travelling Settlement

My daughter asked me whether the Prime Minister or the Chief Minister can avail LTC (Leave Travelling Concession). I said, “most probably they can, they are also government employees”. She further asked whether they actually claim. I told her, “not sure whether they claim or not, but years ago I read in the newspaper that one PM was in Kerala on a vacation”. Again, not very sure whether he avail LTC or not.

The stories of travel settlements are available everywhere. Even a story of settlement claim by Hanumanji came up; the dealing assistant refused to clear Hanumanji’s file and put many objections – he is not entitled to fly; he was not supposed to bring a mountain; he did not clear the mountain till date; moreover, no travel documents are submitted; his flying included foreign land; he flew without passport and visa etc. etc. Nobody could over-rule the objections put by the dealing assistant. Hanumanji went to Ramji for help. As usual Ramji told him, ‘please don’t drag me into this'; he asked Hanumanji to go to Laxmanji. Hanumanji went to Laxmanji for his indulgence. Laxmanji called the file and overruled all the objections with the following replies: though he is not entitled to fly, he flew on emergency; as he is not a medical practitioner he could not identify the plant (medicinal) , so he brought the mountain in good faith; for clearing the mountain a different Department will look into; as far as his foreign trips are concerned he got the oral order from the highest competent authority; the file is cleared and needful must be done immediately.

It must be a fact that 99 percent of the employees avail LTC. Leave Travelling Concession is given to all the State and Central government employees. Generally, they can avail it once in two years or in other words 2 times in 4 years (which is officially called a block year). Most of the government employees enjoy this facility. First because this is an opportunity for the whole family (dependent members) of the government employee to travel together and have fun together or go to their home-town or home-village. It is not mandatory to travel together, but in most of the cases they do travel together.Some may travel by Air or some may travel by Train or by Bus according to their position/level in the government hierarchy. Even within the Air category some are entitled for the Executive or ‘J’ class and some are for the ‘Y’ or Economy class. For the Railways, the categorization is made on the basis of entitlement – AC1, AC2, AC3, First class, Sleeper, etc. Even for the buses there are hierarchical categories – First class, Deluxe, Non-Deluxe, Ordinary etc.

One retired Babu who was dealing with the settlement of Travel expenses and LTC claims narrated a story of group LTC fabrication. Many families of government employees used to go to Vrindavan along with their family availing LTC. There were many tour operators for Vrindavan. Actually, they were the bus owners who conducted group trips to Vrindavan. One trip is for about 20 days. Many government employees went to Vrindavan on LTC through these tour operators. Objections were put; they must have traveled by government transport; it is a packaged trip (fare part unclear); no prior approval was taken to travel by private buses (tour operators) etc. These objections were cleared by the higher authority saying that the fare part of the claim may be segregated and settle the claims.( Travel by private buses allowed ).

Then a roaring business had started; for instance, “Trip to Vrindavan and nearby places on LTC” by such and such Tour Operator. Many did not go but started claiming LTC for their entire family, submitting bogus bus tickets from these private tours and travels. It became a rampant nuisance and almost had turned into a scandal. One internal enquiry was set up to look into such doubtful claims.

The proprietor of the concerned tour operator was summoned to examine the tickets allegedly issued by his firm; whether they actually issued those tickets. He saw the tickets and said “these are fake”. Then the claimants were called to defend themselves. They went to the highest authority to save their jobs. Then the competent authority issued an order saying that for the unreliable tickets other credible evidences of their respective travels must be submitted. Consequently, the hell loose large; some brought Jamuna water in a bottle, some brought Bal Gopal figurines, Radha-Krishna pictures, some brought photographs (studio made) clicked in Vrindavan & Mathura; some brought Vrindavan chandan, Vrindavan stone, Vrindavan chaadar etc. After examining these credible evidences the settlements were allowed. These evidences are still kept for future reference and ‘precedence’. These days LTC/travel claims are easily verified on the click of a mouse as a result of massive computerization and 24-hour internet. So be careful while settling your bogus claims and fake bills.

ANSWER

Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office. (DR. JITENDRA SINGH)

(a) to (e): The service rules of the Government employees have been framed keeping in view their contextual purpose and with a view to make them gender neutral.

As per Rule 50 of Central Civil Services (CCS)(Pension) Rules, 1972, father and mother of a Government employee (which includes a female Government employee) come within the definition of family. For the purpose of gratuity, there is no condition of dependency or inclusion in family.

In respect of General Provident Fund (GPF) Rule, female employees can nominate their parents for the benefits of GPF. There is no dependency criterion for nominating parents for the benefits of GPF.

Under Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) Rules, married women employees have the option either to opt their dependent parents or dependent parents-in-law for CGHS facilities.

As per All India Services (AIS) {Medical Attendance (MA) Rules}, ‘family’ definition includes the name of parents wholly dependent upon the member of service and normally residing with such member.

As per CCS {Leave Travel Concession (LTC)} Rules, ‘family’ definition includes parents or step parents wholly dependent on the Government servant irrespective of whether they are residing with the Government servant or not.

As per CCS(Conduct Rules), “Members of family” in relation to a Government servant include the wife or husband, son or daughter, parents, brothers or sisters or any person related to any of them by blood or marriage, whether they are dependent on the Government servant or not.

As per AIS (Conduct) Rules, any person related, whether by blood or marriage, to such member or to his or her wife or husband, as the case may be, and wholly dependent on such member is treated as member of family.
