Travelling Allowance Rules -Reference

Posted by binu P Saturday, June 12, 2010


The ‘Grade Pay’ for determining the TA/DA entitlement is as indicated in Central Civil Service(Revised Pay) ,Rules 2008.

The term ‘Pay’ for the purpose of these orders refer to basic pay as defined in Rule3(8) of Central Civil Service(Revised Pay)Rules 2008 and includes the revised non-practicing allowance, if any, admissible in addition.
In respect of those employees who opt to continue in their pre-revised scales of pay, the corresponding Grade Pay of the pay sclaes of the post occupied on 1/1/2006 would determine the TA/DA entitlements under these orders. However, for determining the Composite Transfer Grant for such employees, the term pay shall also include, in addition to the basic pay in the pre-revised Scales, stagnation increments, Dearness Pay and NPA as per orders in force on 1/1/2006.
These orders shall take effect from 1st September,2008. However, if the Travelling Allowance entitlements in terms of the revised entitlements now prescribed result in a lowering of the existing entitlements in the case of any individual, groups or classes of employees, the entitlements, particularly in respect of ‘node of travel, class of accommodation, etc,. shall not be lowered. They will instead continue to be governed by the earlier orders on the subject till such time as they become eligible, in the normal course, for the higher entitlements.
The claims submitted in respect of journey made on or after 1st September,2008, may be regulated in accordance with these orders.
It may be noted that no additional funds will be provided on account of revision in TA/DA entitlements. It may therefore be ensured that permission to official travel is given judiciously and restricted only to absolutely essential official requirements.

  2. I am working in Coir Board which is an autonomous body, under the control of Ministry of micro, small and medium enterprises, Govt. of India. I need some clarification on the traveling allowance for central government employees being followed in your organization.
    As you are aware that traveling allowance rules after 6th pay commission implementation is squarely governed under OM, F No 19030/3/2008 E-IV dated 23.09.2008 and therein it has been clearly envisaged under item 2 that “Grade pay for determining TA/DA entitlement is as indicated in CCS(RP)rules 2008” and mentions that officers drawing grade pay of Rs.5400 and Rs.6600 are entitled to travel by economy class by air or AC II tier class by train.

    In my case I am in the grade pay of 5400 and I have acquired this grade pay by virtue of Assured career progression scheme. My office is restricting me to travel only by AC II tier class and not allowing the air travel mentioning that I have acquired the grade pay by virtue of ACP. Now my question is:
    • Whether the contention of my office is correct?
    • What is the traveling allowance to be followed for the air travel to the officers drawing grade pay of Rs.5400 and Rs.6600 for those who got the grade pay by virtue of ACP/MACP?

  4. No, the contention of your office is not correct. You are eligible for travel by air economy class, if you are drawing grade pay of Rs.5400/- irrespective of whether you are promoted or getting on the basis of MACPS.

  10. I am central govt employee and have transported my belongings by road consequent upon my deputation from Cochin to Delhi.

    i have claimed the transport charges against the bill provided by the movers and packers. I am in the grade pay of Rs.4600 and so I am entitled for Rs.30 per Km for maximum of 60 quintals of goods.
    however, the my office says that I will be getting the charges only as per the rates of Rail/CONCOR.

    I am afraid that rail charges would be too low and its causing undue delay as they have written to the CONCOR for the tariffs.

    please tell me if there is any circular which says that i will be getting only the minimum charges or the charges as per the mode of transporting the goods.

  21. I am entitled to reimbursement of food bills for Rs 375/- per day (Rs 300+75).
    I submitted the bills partly from my mess and partly from local market/restaurants.Because everything which you want to eat may not be available in the mess or at times we cannot reach mess at lunch time and have to take meals/snacks from market/restaurant, while restricting overall limit to Rs. 375/- per day only.

    Bills were returned by accounts department with observations that 1) Amount for EXTRA messing is not entitled to. Nomenclature EXTRA messing is for items other than regular menu, obtained from mess. Overall limit of Rs 375/- may or may not be breached.
    2) Meals taken from places other than mess is not entitled to while staying in mess.
