Government eases LTC rules, urges employees to share travel pictures

Government employees who avail of leave travel concession (LTC) may be encouraged to share on "appropriate forum" any interesting insights and pictures of the destinations visited by them, the department of personnel and training (DoPT) has proposed as part of updated LTC rules and procedures.

The proposal, put up for comments to be given over the next fortnight, does not specify the "appropriate forum" on which government staff can post write-ups and photos of their LTC holidays. Sources however told TOI that the insights and pictures may be submitted by the government employees to their respective departments, which may then post them on their websites.

The new Central Civil Services (LTC) Rules seek to ease the procedural difficulties faced by government employees while applying for and settling LTC claims. Setting outer time-limits for various LTC procedures, the DoPT on Monday said leave or sanction of LTC leave advance would take no more than five days each. This would be extendable by two days where the government employee is away for the headquarters.

Besides, the administration will take no more than 10 days (12 where the employee is away from headquarters) to verify LTC claims after the LTC bill is submitted by the government employee.

The government also proposes to allow its employees to self-certify their proposed LTC journey. Under existing CCS (LTC) Rules, government employees are required to inform their controlling officer before the journey on LTC is to be undertaken.

Also, whenever a government employee applies for LTC, he /she may be provided with a copy of the guidelines to be followed while availing of the concession.

A government servant is allowed to avail of LTC once in a block of two years to visit his/her hometown, while LTC to any place in India can be availed once in a four-year block. If not availed during these blocks, the LTC may also be availed in the first year of the following block.
