    Siir, For transport of personal belongings by road our office is paying only the rate in km multiplied by the proportional(proportion of max weight allowed by steamer) weight, though the circular says by kilometer only. Is this the correct practice.

    • Transportation of personal effects by road is as per kilometer basis as per entitlement maximum weight only irrespective of weight of personal belongings.

  • Harendra Joshi 5 years ago

    Sir, please clarify whether GST charged by truck owners over admissibility amount while transporting house hold goods is also reimbursible over restricted amount while restricting with per KM rate.
    eg A person paid Rs. 80000/- + GST 18% Rs. 14400 for transporting his house goods from A station to B station (distance 1400 KM). He is entitled for Rs.50/- per KM.
    Thus his entitlement restricted to Rs.70000/- . Whether 18% GST is also reimbursable to him over 70000/- or otherwise.
