GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION

D.O. No. 7CPC/158/Meetings/2015
18th February, 2015
Dear
The Seventh Central Pay Commission has, from the time of its constitution, engaged with a variety of stakeholders on issues which it has been mandated to cover in accordance with its terms of reference. Based on the wide ranging interaction the Commission has had in the recent months, certain broad issues have emerged before the Commission. The Commission has also been seeking from individual Ministries/Departments their views on the issues posed, in relation to matters that are relevant to the Ministries.

The Commission has had the occasion to interact with the National Council and its constituents in May 2014. Before the Commission firms up its views on the major issues it is mandated to cover, a discussion with the National Council would be very useful.

Accordingly, a meeting of the National Council with the 7th Central Pay Commission has been scheduled at 11.00 am on 25 February, 2015, in the Conference Room, 1st floor, B-14/A, Chatrapati Shivaji Bhawan, Qutub Institutional , Area, New Delhi
Yours sincerely,
(Meena Agarwal)

Budget: Government may relax LTC norms to boost tourism

Budget: Government may relax LTC norms to boost tourism

NEW DELHI: In order to give boost to the tourism sector, the Budget for 2015-16 is likely to expand the scope of LTA and LTC by including hotel and other expenses besides travel for the purpose of tax benefit.
The Ministry, sources said, it is also considering a proposal to allow employees to avail Leave Travel Concession (LTC)/ Leave Travel Allowance (LTA) every year as against the current practice of two times in a block of four years.
At present, LTA or LTC covers only economy class air travel or first class (AC I Class) rail fare. An announcement in this regard is likely to be made in the Budget to be presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on February 28.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier expressed his keenness to promote tourism. Experts are of the view that encouragement to the tourism sector will promote development of different regions and create employment opportunities.
“To boost domestic tourism and also provide some tax relief to the individuals, the Leave Travel Concession benefit should be increased to one visit for every financial year,” KPMG (India) Partner Vikas Vasal said.
He further suggested that tax concessions should also be made available for stay in hotel may also be covered to help families avail of a holistic benefit.
The LTC/LTA is available to the individual and his family including spouse, two children, parents, brothers and sisters, who are wholly dependent on the assessee.
“There is a huge scope for developing the tourism industry in India which provides direct and indirect employment to millions of people. Therefore, an enhanced tax relief to individuals on LTC will benefit the overall economy,” Vasal said.
