Earlier only two options were available
Under the system of government, employees used to have two options earlier. The first is that they travel and spend. This included the cost of hotel, food etc. They had another option that if they did not claim within the stipulated date, they would not be able to get the benefit of this scheme. But, now these employees have been given a third option. That is, employees can use this amount for any other expense other than travel. In the current era of the Kovid-19 epidemic, the government has offered this option in view of the risk of infection during travel.
