Thanks to Govt to allow their employees to visit J & K by Air from any Private Airlines.

LTC to visit Andaman and Nicobar island should also be extended on similar lines.

My interpretations to this order are as follows:
(a) Para (iv) clearly indicates that restrictions on traveling by AirIndia applies to other destinations.This means that to travel to J&K,one can travel by any airlines.Perhaps there could be one restriction: The fair should not exceed that of AirIndia.
(b) All Class-I officers up to Grade pay of Rs.8900 may travel by economy class (even in the highest fare bracket) from their place of work to any place in J&K.If they travel by private airline,the fare should be restricted to that of Air India.Hence the tour packages which were available before 4th December 2008 should now be available specially for J&K.
(c) All Class-I officers above Rs. 10000 Grade pay may travel by executive class from their place of work to any place in J&K.If they travel by private airline,the fare should be restricted to that of Air India.

Can an employee who has availed LTC visit to North East against conversion of one block of his/her Home Town LTC avail LTC visit to J & K against conversion of another block of home town LTC.

one time conversion of home town LTC into NES range is giving to only those who are working in the different head quarters. The persons working in the same head quarters should also be consider the conversion of hometown LTC into NER


indian airlines have a very limite service for Leh. Therefore a Govt employee is free to choose any air lines, whether kingfisher, jetairways and his claim be restricted to LTC80 fare. However to be on safer side, be sure that on that particular date indian airlines do not have service for Leh

As per the OM,the LTC is to visit JK by conversion of one home town LTC. Is it not applicable to those having ALL india - Anywhere in India-LTC during a block year of 4 years ?.
Similarly, air fare was admissible from duty station to all Group -B offiocers for visiting NE Region. However for this this LTC, it is limited to only those who are eligible for air travel as for tour and in the case of other Group-B officers, , the air fare is admitted only from Delhi or Amritsar .
Will you get these points clarified please !

Please relax the rule of eligiblity to travel by air from the working place.
Because in our department there are employees in B & C group drawing Rs.4800/- as gradepay. Other LTC rule depends the gradepay only.


As per the OM No. 31011/2/3003 Estt A-IV dated 18.06.10 in respect of LTC to visit JK by conversion of one home town LTC. Is it not applicable to those having all India-anywhere in India-LTC during a block year of 4 years.
