Dated February 9, 2017
Subject:- Central Civil Services (Leave Travel Concession) Rules, 1988 — Fulfillment of procedural requirements – Clarification reg.
The undersigned is directed to refer to para 8 and 9 of the Guidelines enclosed in this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 18.2.2016 on the above noted subject and to say that the issues have been revisited. It has been decided that the cases where a Government servant travels on LTC upto the nearest airport/railway station/ bus terminal by authorized mode of transport and undertakes rest of the journey to the declared place of visit by private transport/ own arrangement (such as personal vehicle or private taxi etc.), may be dealt with as follows:-
(a) In all such cases the Government servant may be required to submit a declaration that he and the members of the family in respect of whom the claim is submitted have indeed travelled upto the declared place of visit.
(b) If a public transport is available in a particular area, the Government servant will be reimbursed the fare admissible for journey by otherwise entitled mode of public transport from the nearest airport/railway station/bus terminal to the declared place of visit by shortest direct route.
(c) In case, there is no public transport available in a particular stretch of journey, the Government servant may be reimbursed as per his entitlement for journey on transfer for a maximum limit of 100 Kms covered by the private/personal transport based on a self-certification from the Government servant. Beyond this, the expenditure shall be borne by the Government servant.
(d) Furnishing of false information will attract disciplinary action under the CCS(CCA) Rules, 1965.
Note: For the purpose of these rules, the expression ‘Public Transport” means all vehicles, including trains and airplanes operated by the Tourism Development Corporations in the Public Sector, State Transport Corporations and Transport services run by other Government or local bodies.

    Sir i am journey performed HTLTC long route due to shortage route not suitable from my destination. Can I admit the claim. .. Give any direction or information.

  • In the case round journey performed by private vehicle due to non availability of government mode of transport, so in this case
    100 K.m. X Rs. 10 Per K.M. = 10000 X 2 for Return Journey = Rs.2000/-
    this calculation is correct or not.
