Dear

I am writing this in connection with admissibility of 10 days leave encashment in case LTC claim of an official is disallowed for travelling in a private vehicle during LTC.

2. The Gist of the case is as follows;

Sh. Alok Chandra Singh, Scientist ‘G’ while serving at RCMA Kanpur availed Home Town LTC to visit his home town Lucknow before retirement. He was also paid 10 days Leave encashment of RS. 67,125/-. When the official submitted his LTC claim, it was disallowed by his PAO, AO (R&D) Kanpur, for having travelled by private vehicle. Simultaneously, he was also. advised to refund Rs. 67,125/- drawn by him as leave encashment. The aggrieved retired official refunded the amount but has represented to this office vide his application dated 20.8.2018 against the recovery action advised by AO (R&D) Kanpur. When the case was submitted, my predecessor expressed apprehension about disallowance of the claim and accordingly the case was referred to HQ Office for clarification. HQ Office vides their No. AT/IV/4462/LTC_Claim/II_ Dated 16.4.2019 advised this office to seek the opinion of other regional Controllers and forward the issue back to them for issuing necessary clarification. (Copy enclosed)

3. As per CCS (LTC) Rules 1988, reimbursement of fare is made by pay accounts officer for the journey performed by an entitled class of accommodation. Although fare reimbursement can be disallowed for not having performed journey in entitled class, it does not dilute individuals right to leave encashment if the official provides proof of actually having visited the declared destination. I am, therefore, of the considered opinion that the official is entitled to leave encashment of 10 days since there is no doubt on his visiting his home town.
