Fraudulent claim of Leave Travel concession – Disciplinary proceedings are initiated against the Government servant as per existing rules.

While answering to a question in Lok Sabha on 16th July 2014 about misuse in availing Leave Travel Concession by the Central Government employees, Dopt Minister said that the “Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) had received a letter from Central Vigilance Commissioner addressed to Cabinet Secretary regarding irregularities and misuse in availing Leave Travel Concession (LTC) by the public servants in the Central Government, its Public Enterprises (PSEs) and Public Sector Banks, in violation of the guidelines.

The matter is being investigated by CBI.

Government of India formulates the policies and schemes keeping in mind the various service requirements of the employees and their welfare. Various Ministries/Departments & other agencies of the Government of India are responsible for the proper implementation of these policies. These policies are reviewed from time to time and also amended when situation demands.

In case of Leave Travel concession if any fraudulent claim is made, the irregularities are looked into in terms of Rule 16 of the CCS(LTC) Rules, 1988 and disciplinary proceedings are initiated against the Government servant on the charge of preferring a fraudulent claim which may result in imposition of the any of the penalties specified in Rule 11 of CCS (Classification, Control and Appeal Rules), 1965. If found guilty, the Government servant shall not be allowed the next two or more sets of LTC in addition to the sets already withheld during the pendency of the disciplinary proceedings”.

LDC-UDC ISSUE:

The comments of Shri George Antony, Kalpakkam on the Memorandum submitted to the 7th Pay Commission by this Association is given below: Shri Antony has made a comparative study on the pay scales of LDC & UDCs of Kerala State and Central Government wherein it has seen that the LDC/UDC posted in Central Government are being paid much less pay than the pay of LDC/UDC of Kerala State.
 
All our friends are requested to send useful material in support of the demands put up by us to the 7th CPC to this Association so that the same may be used during oral evidence.

TKR Pillai

I have gone through your memorandum to 7th CPC. After analyzing the past pay commissions and various state government pay commissions, I have observed some facts which I would like to share with you. This may be useful for your meeting with 7th CPC in the nearby future.
The observations are listed below for your consideration.
1) There is a general conception that central gov. employee’s pay is more than state gov. employee’s pay. But this is not true in many cases. Kerala gov. employee’s pay is more than central gov. employee’s pay in many equivalent posts like LDC, UDC etc.
