LTA Tip for Government Employees

in Tax

Reader D.D. Kandpal sent me this incredible LTA tip, which I hadn’t heard or read anywhere, and I thought I’d share it on a post of it’s own.

Please note that these provisions are for those who join Government service only.

Rule 8 Type of LTC

“ Fresh recruits to Central Government may be are allowed to travel to their home town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and to any place in India on the fourth occasion. This facility shall be available to the Government officers only for the first two blocks of four years applicable after joining the Government for the first time. The blocks of 4 years shall apply with reference to the initial date of joining the Government even though the employee changes the job within Government subsequently. The existing blocks will remain the same but the entitlements of the new recruit will be different in the first eight years of service.”

Ref  O.M.  NO. F.No. 31011/4/2008-Estt. (A)  dated 23rd September, 2008 issued by Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension, Department of Personnel & Training .


Thank you to Mr. Kandpal for sending this along, and my apologies for publishing this so late.
