OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Central Civil Services (Leave Travel concession) Rules, 1988 – Fulfillment of Procedural requirements.

This Department is in receipt of a number of references regarding the procedural difficulties faced by the Government employees in application and settlement of the LTC claims. Sometimes, the Government servants claim that failure to follow the correct procedure was on account of a lack of knowledge of the rules/instructions while in the other cases the delay is caused in the late processing of LTC claims.
