Subject:- Revision of time limit for drawal of advance for the purpose of LTC journey by train.
The undersigned is directed to refer to
this Ministry’s O.M. No. 31011/5/98-Estt.(A) dated 30.03.1998 regarding
relaxation of time-limit for drawal of LTC advance, wherein it has been
stated that a Government employee can draw advance for LTC journey for
himself and his family members sixty-five days before the proposed date
of the outward journey.
2. Since, the Ministry of Railways has
decided to increase the Advance Reservation Period (ARP) for booking
accommodation in trains from 60 days to 120 days (excluding the date of
journey) w.e.f. 1st April 2015, the time-limit for drawal of LTC advance
by the Government servants may be increased from 65 days (i.e. 2 months
& 5 days) to 125 days (i.e. 4 months and 5 days) in case of journey
3. Cases where the LTC journey is
proposed to be undertaken by other modes of transport viz. air/sea/road,
the time-limit for drawing LTC advance shall remain 65 days only.
4. In all the cases, where an advance is
drawn for the purpose of availing LTC, it will be mandatory for the
Government servant to produce the outward journey tickets to the
Competent Authority within ten days of drawal of advance in order to
verify that he has actually utilised the amount to purchase the tickets.
