All full time staff and teachers including aided school staff are eligible for LTC. Applicants should have completed 15 years of service to avail of this concession. As per the existing order, LTC can be availed of one time only during the service. But the employees on suspension or LWA for other jobs and part time contingent employees and temporary employees are exempted to take advantage of this.

It is allowed for the employees, employee’s husband/ wife, unmarried children / legally adopted children etc. All employees should enter the name and details of family members in their service book ( page no. 5). At the time of applying for LTC, the higher official should verify the details of the applicant that the names entered in service book and those given in the application are same.

LTC is granted for the distance of 6500 kms (including return journey). Also the short and direct route would be considered for sanctioning the amount. LTC is allowed for 15 days, inclusive of holidays. Teachers of schools and colleges will be allowed LTC on vacation as per para 5(lV) of LTC Rules/guidlines GO(P)No.5/2013 Fin dtd 02/01/2013 ( not allowed during Onam or X’mas holidays).

The employees should submit all related documents and original tickets to the controlling officer within three months after the journey. 90% of the amount can be claimed in advance even before the trip. The copy of the tickets should be submitted along with the application for this. Advance is allowed as per the allotment. If the advance is claimed, all proofs for journey under taken should be submitted to the controlling officer within one month after the journey. If not, advance amount along with interest would be deducted from the next month salary. A declaration regarding the place chosen for the trip should be given to the controlling officer before the journey.

The exact train/bus/air fare ( from and to ) will be issued. Other allowances like incidental expenses, DA for halt etc. as given in KSR Tour TA are not allowed.

In the case of both the husband and wife are govt employees, LTC can be claimed by one of them only. And 'LTC not claimed' certificate by the other should be submitted.

  3. para 5 (iv) says ''Teachers of schools and colleges will be allowed LTC on vacation''.'vacation only' word is not there in the order. As teachers cant take leave on vacation they should have the privilege to avail LTC on vacation also.
