    Sir,

    Entitlements for Journeys on Tour or Training as 7cpc

    A.(i) Travel Entitlements within the Country

    Pay Level in Pay Matrix Travel entitlement
    6 to 11 Economy class by air or AC-II by train

    As per 7 CPC for the Pay level mentioned above it says that 6 to 11are eligible for AIR travel entitlement . I being sports men represent Department in Central Revenue sports meet and travelled by Air. Whereas on submission of my TA claim PAO rejected my claim stating that journey/tour performed by sportsperson are considered as recreation purpose hence only 3rd AC is eligible. Is that correct pls clarify
