7th Pay Commission: Over 50 lakh central government employees in India have been eagerly awaiting the implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations. Even though the benefits have not been passed on to all of them, a recent announcement made by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) under Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions brought good news for a certain section. In this circular that was issued on March 27, the ministry said that government employees and their spouses will now be able to avail Leave Travel Concession (LTC).

The ministry said that due to the existing LTC instructions, government servants and their spouses, working in Indian Railways, are not entitled to the facility of LTC as the facility of “Free Pass” is available to them. However, Seventh Pay Commission recommended that they should be included in the LTC fold.

“The matter has been considered in this department in consultation with Ministry of Railways. It has been decided that Railway employees may be allowed to avail all-India LTC once in a block of four years,” the ministry said while adding, “The ‘All-India LTC’ will be purely optional for railway employees.”

The ministry, however, made it clear that all the railway employees shall continue to be governed by the Railway Servants (Pass) Rules and availing of the “All India LTC” under the CCS (LTC) Rules by them will be facilitated through a special order under the relevant provision of the said Pass Rules.

It was also made clear that the railway employees will not be eligible for “Home Town LTC” and will have to surrender the Privilege Passes (concessional or free tickets) admissible to them in the calendar year in which they intend to avail the LTC facility.

Meanwhile, the Mizoram Finance Minister Lalsawta on Wednesday informed the state legislature that the state government intended to implement the seventh central pay commission during 2018-2019. Replying to questions from five members, Lalsawta said that the government had been waiting for the recommendation of a committee to study the seventh pay commission which was yet to submit its report and recommendations.

He said that the state government would incur an additional expenditure of Rs 563.24 crore if and when the seventh central pay commission recommendation was implemented.

    The increase should have been linked to result. With the existing nature and at ude of the workers, the increase is unwarranted. Further, the habit of extracting money for favors by the workers should be banned totally. If this is enforced, the efficiency of the workers will improve and the public would have the benefit of quick and cheap results

                    What is great about LTC. This provision is available earlier also. In respect of railway employees, railway passes are much benificial than LTC.

                      What is huge? I think financial express has forgotten basic meaning for English words. LTC benefits are given to all central government employees but railways get free passes and PTO benefits instead. What the government has done now is to give LTC instead of a set of PTO. I DON'T know how it turns out to be a huge benefit and to entire central government employees. Bogus reporting.

                              Media is only the unfavourable to govt employees.... Dear media members one thing I will ask u... Do u think the 7th CPC is helpful to us... Certainly not... From Jan 2016 so many areas house was increased by thinking that govt is giving more ry hike for us but it was not happened and we are paying increased s. We are loosing personal life by doing our duties in festivals and holidays. And the increased ry we are paying to govt as income tax as the slabs were remain unchanged after CPC. What we are getting compared to software employees...? Pls think once before writing... And finally coming to LTC...it's not benificial to railway employees as we won't get that much of chance to go villages along with family in this less staff tight situations... Plz don't spread this type of bakwas news which is hurting us alot and and other people may think that govt employees are getting more ries and benefits
