    Sir m working as nursing officer in PGI Chandigarh since 2013. And i m living in Chandigarh only . I never availed any ltc due to block year issues. But now when i want to go to port blair under ltc. M not applicable bcoz my hometown and headquatrr same. My question is this it is fair for me being central government employee to wait for such ltc till 2021? Atleast govt should give some relaxation for traveling this states to person who are residing at same place where thr headquatrr is!
