Sub: Regulation of LTC claims when portion of journey are performed by
private transport – Regd.

This Directorate has sought clarification from the Nodal Ministry regarding reimbursement of LTC claims where a part of the journey (be it in the
beginning, middle or end) has been performed by the Government servant by unauthorized
mode of transport (private bus/private taxi etc.) and rest of the journey to the
declared place of visit by authorized mode of transport.

2. The Nodal Ministry has issued following clarification:
(I) DOP&T’s OM no. 31011/3/2015-Estt. (A.IV) dated 09.02.2017 provides
that cases where a Government servant travels on LTC upto the nearest
airport/railway station/bus terminal by authorized mode of transport and undertakes rest of
the journey to the declared place of visit by private transport/ own
arrangement (such as personal vehicle or private taxi etc.), may be dealt with as follows:-

(a) In all such cases the Government servant may be required to submit a declaration that he and the members of the family in respect of whom the
claim is submitted have indeed travelled upto the declared place of visit.
(b) If a public transport is available in a particular area, the Government
servant will be reimbursed the fare admissible for journey by otherwise entitled
mode of public transport from the nearest airport/railway station/bus terminal to
the declared place of visit by shortest direct route.
(c) In case, there is no public transport available in a particular stretch
of journey, the Government  servant may be reimbursed as per his entitlement for journey
on transfer for a maximum limit of 100 kms covered by the private/personal
transport based on a self-certification from the Government servant. Beyond this, the expenditure shall be borne by the Government servant.
(II) In view of the above provisions, a Government employee shall get fare reimbursement in cases where the initial or end part of the LTC journey
from the source/destination to the nearest railhead/airport or vice-versa, as the
case may be, has been performed by a private/personal mode of transport while the major
part of the journey from the nearest railhead/airport has been performed by the
authorized mode of transport.
