No daily allowance for travel on LTC; 6 new LTA conditions here that you may like to know

YES, for the Central government employees, there will no longer be daily allowances being admissible for travel on LTC. Following the decisions taken by government on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission relating to travelling allowance entitlements of Central Government employees, the TA rules have undergone changes according to an office memorandum dated July 13, 2017. It is also clarified that the travel entitlements of government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified in the same order except the air travel entitlement for Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, which is allowed in respect of TA only and not for LTC. Here are 6 key new LTA conditions that you need to know:
1. No daily allowance shall be admissible for travel on LTC.
2. Any incidental expenses and the expenditure incurred on local journeys shall not be admissible.
3. Reimbursement for the purpose of LTC shall be admissible in respect of journeys performed in vehicles operated by the government or any corporation in the public sector run by the Central or state government or a local body.
4. In case of journey between the places not connected by any public/government means of transport, the government servant shall be allowed reimbursement as per his entitlement for journey on transfer for a maximum limit of 100 km 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.
5. Travel by premium trains/premium Tatkal trains/Suvidha trains is now allowed on LTC. Further, reimbursement of tatkal charges or premium tatkal charges shall also be admissible for the purpose of LTC.
6. Flexi fare (dynamic fare) applicable in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains shall be admissible for the journey(s) performed by these trains on LTC. This dynamic fare component shall not be admissible in cases where a non-entitled government servant travels by air and claims reimbursement for the entitled class of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains.
