    Sub : Extension of Special Package for North-Eastern Region 2 year from 1/5/2012

    Declaration of extention of LTC for NR only period for two years is not correct. As per my opinion 100% financial package declation is required for destination like Andaman Nicobar /J&K/North east etc. which will be very very recoverable of financial loss of indian airlines, development of destination such as Andaman Nicobar /J&K/North east etc.as well as travel satisfaction for central govt servants to encourage working attitude and health.
