Central employees will get double benefit
7th Pay Commission- There is great news for crores of central employees and pensioners.
New Delhi. There is great news for crores of central employees and pensioners. Keeping in mind the interests of central employees and pensioners, the government has given relief to government employees. The Central Government (Modi Govt) has extended the Travel Allowance (TA) claim submission deadline from 60 days to 180 days. It has been implemented from 15 June 2021. In March 2018, the central government had reduced the deadline for TA claim on retirement from 1 year to 60 days. To extend this deadline, many government departments were speaking to the government, after which this decision was taken.
What did the Finance Ministry say?
The Ministry of Finance has said on this that many applications were received to extend this time limit. It is very complicated for a retiring central employee to travel from one place to another with family after retirement and then to settle down, for which the time of allowance submission was very less 60 days, now it has been extended. Under this facility, a retiring central employee can submit travel expenses for 6 months after his journey. But the deadline for TA claim submission for tour, transfer and training will remain 60 days.
