  1. I m still confused!
    I m working in esic hospital as IMO,
    The place wer I m posted is 16 kms from my home town,
    I m living nearby hospital and not in home town
    Both home town and headquarters are in same district but in different tehsil-taluka.
    So would I be eligible for home town ltc and it’s conversion?
    Kindly help me and provide me related circulars.
