No home town LTC for those who are posted in hometown

Employees who are posted in their home town cannot take Leave Travel Concession (LTC), the Centre has said.

"Government employees whose headquarters or place of posting and home town are one and the same are not eligible for home town LTC," it said.

Besides, these employees cannot convert home town LTC to avail special concession scheme to travel to North-East region, Jammu and Kashmir, and Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Department of Personnel and Training said in an order.

However, government employees whose headquarters are Delhi and reside in cities or towns outside the national capital and falling in other states of National Capital Region (NCR) are eligible for home town concession, the order said.

Every new recruit in government service is required to declare his or her home town to avail the benefits of LTC.

The LTC allows grant of leave and ticket reimbursement to eligible central government employees to travel to their home towns.

However, the government has recently allowed employees to visit North-East region and Jammu and Kashmir, among others, in order to promote tourism and increase people-to-people contact.
