6.4.9 Item No. 19/19/NC-47 - LTC for Dependent parents to visit their son at his duty station and to go back to native place.
Staff Side stated that Government employee and his family are allowed LTC to go to their native place and go back to duty station 2 times in a block of 3 years. The parents of most of the govt. servants prefer to live at their native place, though dependent on the govt. servant. It is suggested that in the first year/next year, the serving employee and his family may be permitted to go on LTC to their native place to meet their parents. In the next or the first year, the parents, if dependent on the Government servant, may be permitted to go from native station to duty station of their son/ daughter on LTC and to return to their native place.
Reply of the Official Side:
DoPT has already issued an OM on 31.10.2017 . Hence, the demand of Staff Side has been accepted.
The item may be treated as closed.
