Subject: Leave Travel Concession to Central Government Employees – Travel by State Tourism Development Corporation buses – Clarification regarding.
The undersigned is directed to say that under the existing instructions contained in this Department’s O.M. No. 31011/4/97-Estt.(A) dated 9th February, 1998, Leave Travel Concession is not admissible if the journeys are performed in private buses or buses hired or chartered by ITDC/State Tourism Development Corporations from outside. The Staff Side has raised a demand in the National Council (JCM) that the tours conducted by the ITDC/State Tourism Development Corporations either in their own buses or buses hired or chartered by them may be made admissible for availing the facility of Leave Travel Concession. The matter has been reconsidered and it has been decided that tours conducted by ITDC/State Tourism Development Corporations either in their own buses or buses hired or chartered by them from outside will qualify for the purpose of availing Leave Travel Concession facilities provided the ITDC/State Tourism Development Corporations certify that the journey has actually been performed by the Government servant and his family members for which he is claiming the Leave Travel Concession.
2. The above instructions will be applicable as and when OM dated 2.3.2001 suspending LTC facility is withdrawn. The cases of exempted retiring employees and pending cases where decision is yet to be taken may be decided in the light of instructions laid down in para 1 above. However, the past cases decided otherwise need not be reopened.
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India.
