Recommendations of 7th Pay Commission regarding
Reimbursement of Travelling & Daily Allowances: 
 
8.15.15 The Commission considered the present model of this allowance,
followed both in Railways and in other ministries. It is proposed to adopt
the best from both of them so that the administration of the allowance can
be simplified. Accordingly the following is recommended. 
a)
Reimbursement of staying accommodation charges (hotel charges)
 
For levels 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. The ceiling for reimbursement will further rise by 25
percent whenever DA increases by 50 percent. Additionally, it is also
provided that for stay in Class ‘X’ cities, the ceiling for all employees
up to Level 8 would be Rs. 1,000 per day, but it will only be in the form
of reimbursement upon production of relevant vouchers. 
b)
Reimbursement of travelling charges
 
Level
Ceiling for Reimbursement
14 and above AC Taxi charges up to 50 km
12 and 13 Non-AC Taxi charges up to 50 km
9 to 11 338 per day
6 to 8 225 per day
5 and below 113 per day

Similar to Reimbursement of staying accommodation charges, for level 8 and
below, the claim (up to the ceiling) should 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
levels 11 and below will further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases
by 50 percent. The rate of allowance for foot journeys shall be enhanced
from the current rate of 7.5 per km to 12 per km travelled on foot. This
rate also shall further rise by 25 percent whenever DA increases by 50
percent. 
c) There will be no separate reimbursement of food bills. Instead, the lump
sum amount payable will be as per Table 1 below and, depending on the
length of absence from headquarters, would be regulated as per Table 2
below. Since the concept of reimbursement has been done away with, no
couchers will be required. This methodology is in line with that followed
by India Railways at present (with suitable enhancement of rates). 

i)
Lump sum amount payable
