Note:-

Reimbursement of Hotel Charges. For Level 8 and below, the amount of claim (up to the ceiling) may be paid without production of vouchers against self-certified claim only. The self-certified claim should clearly indicate the period of stay, name of dwelling, etc. Additionally, for stay in Class ‘X’ cities, the ceiling for all employees up to Level 8 would be Rs.1000/- per day, but it will only be in the form of reimbursement upon production of relevant vouchers. The ceiling for reimbursement of hotel charges will further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent.

Reimbursement of Travelling Charges. Similar to Reimbursement of accommodation charges, for Level 8 and below, the claim (up to the ceiling) may be paid without production of vouchers against self-certified claim only. The self-certified claim should clearly indicate the period of travel, vehicle number, etc. The ceiling for Level 11 and below will further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent. For journeys on foot, an allowance of Rs 12/- per kilometer travelled on foot shall be payable additionally. This rate will further increase by 25% whenever DA increases by 50%.

Reimbursement of Food Charges. There will be no separate reimbursement of food bills. Instead, the lump sum amount payable will be as per Table above and, depending on the length of absence from headquarters, would be regulated as per timing restrictions given in table below. Since, the concept of reimbursement has been done away with, no vouchers will be required. This methodology is in line with that followed by Indian Railways at present (with suitable enhancement of rates) i.e. lump sum amount will increase by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent.
