Exemption for travel in airlines other than Air India on Govt. Tour: Deptt of Posts OM
ऐसा देखा गया है कि केन्द्र सरकार के अधिकारी Air India के अतिरिक्त किसी और
एयरलाईन से सरकारी दौरा करने की अनुमति के लिए अधूरा एवं नाकाफी दस्तावेजों के
साथ अन्तिम समय में मंत्रालय से एक्स पोस्ट फैक्टो सैंक्शन हेतु मामले भेजते
रहते हैं इससे मामले के निबटारे में अनावश्यक रूप से देरी होती है। अत: पुन:
अनुरोध किया जाता है कि ऐसे मामलों को स्वीकृति हेतु सभी आवश्यक दस्तावेजों को
संलग्न कर संशोधित प्रोफार्मा में भर कर ही प्रेषित ​किया जाए।

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Exemption for travel in airlines other than Air India – reg.

Consequent upon the delegation of powers to the Financial Advisors to accord exemption for air travel in airlines other than Air India in individual cases, this office is receiving requests from the officers seeking exemption for air travel by airlines other than Air India.
While processing such proposals, it has been observed that in spite of repeated instructions issued by the Directorate vide letter no. 17-01/2015-PAP dated 28.07.2016, OM no. 9-1/2016-FA (Posts) dated 09.08.2016 and dated 28.02.2017 (Copies enclosed for ready reference), requests for seeking exemption are being submitted in the last days / hours of the proposed journey and that too with incomplete/insufficient reasons/documents in prescribed Performa (Revised) as required vide Directorate OM no. 9-1/2016-FA (Posts) dated 28.02.2017. This results in avoidable delay in processing such cases and higher expenditure due to the last minute booking of tickets. It is-also seen that even without obtaining approval of the competent authority, the journey by airlines other than Air India is performed and at a later stage requests seeking ex-post facto approval are submitted, violating the instructions on the subject.
In view of the above, it is once again reiterated that the requests in the revised Performa complete in all respect are submitted to JS&FA at least 7 working, days in advance from date of travel so that adequate time is made available for processing in Integrated Finance Wing. It may also be noted that non-receipt of approval by the stipulated date does not entitle one to claim relaxation as a matter of right.
This issue with the approval of Competent Authority.
