2. Further, in partial modification of Board’s letter of even number dated
25.09.2017, it has also been decided by Board that grant of Air Travel
permission to officers on Indian Railways, either one way or two-way, may
be approved personally by GMs of Railways with the prior personal
concurrence of PFA.
3. As delegated vide pars 22 of Board’s letter No. F(X)II-2015/PW/7, dated
12.06.2017 of delegation of powers to GMs, these powers may be exercised
personally by Chief Administrative Officer with the prior personal

Chennai.

4. The competent authority while approving Air Travel would apply his mind
and consider whether the available train connectivity and time taken
justifies the same. For example, while Delhi-Bangalore-Delhi may qualify
for Air Travel, Delhi-Mumbai-Delhi can easily be covered by train
comfortably. General Manager while using his discretion to permit one way
or two-way Air Travel may consider both the need of the journey and the
urgency that necessitates Air Travel.
5. It may be ensured that permission for Air Travel is given judiciously
and restricted only to absolutely essential official requirement that is
recorded, subject to availability of budgetary provisions.

6. This has the approval of Board (FC & CRB).
7. These orders will take effect from the date of issue of this letter.
8. Please acknowledge receipt.
