Dynamic or flexi-fare in Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains will be admissible under the Leave Travel Concession, LTC, allowance to government employees. The Department of Personnel and Training, DoPT, has issued a directive in this regard to all central government ministries.
The move comes after references were received from various segments seeking clarification on the issue of admissibility of flexi-fare while booking the tickets of these trains for the purpose of LTC.
The directive said, this dynamic fare component shall not be admissible in cases where a non-entitled government servant travels by air and claims reimbursement for the entitled class of Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains. It said, such Government servants will get reimbursement of fare after deducting the dynamic fare component.
As per norms, a government employee gets to-and-fro journey cost reimbursement when he avails LTC, in addition to paid leaves.
