If I tell you that you can go anywhere in India, that too, with your family, and the government will bear all your travel expenses.

Will you believe this fact,? You are not just by bus or train.

There are some places.


You can also travel by flight like Pondicherry and all its expenses, which can be around 50000 or more.

The entire expenses will be borne by the government and you will not have to pay a single penny.

Talk about Scheme, LTC or Lift Travel Conservation.

Under, which you can roam anywhere in All India, with your family, that too, for free and in this video we are going to give you all the information related to it as it is valid for them and what can be entertainment and most Special.

If you want to go by flight with your family, then you will get a chance to know in which places and how it is processed.

We will know all this, which just friends.

Let's start the video very quickly, so gaze, like you, guys.

It is known that I keep putting videos related to touring traveling on my channel, whether it is a moto, vlog, Be it or touring guide shows or some such schemes which have been made by the government, and you can get a lot of benefit from them, especially if you do touring etc.

then gas is like this, today, I have brought a video in front of you, which we It is said that if you want to tell about LTC or Lift Travel Consistration in one line, then I will tell you that there is such a scheme by the Central Government that some special people should now take care.

Only some special people can make it well and that too a fix.


You are not doing this Kim well within the time period.

Then let us start and see.


Today we are going to talk about types of LTC, then eligibility.

We will talk about the most important topic after that.

What is the concept of block year and what is the meaning of term of family .

So at what level of entitlement we will tell you what you will get and then comes the highest Important and I think maximum people are looking for this, that what happens? Is the region of Jammu and Kashmir, the region of Ladakh, the facility of flying to Andaman and Nicobar has been made available through this scheme.

We will also talk about gas.

We are going to do that.

What are the terms and what is the procedure, okay,? So, let's come to the first topic, which is Types of LTC, so gas LTC, which is of two types, and both these types of LTC can be availed by government employees.

Ok, so the first type is hometown, LTC or HTC.

Now what happens in this gas? If the employee is posted somewhere outside his home town, then he and his family have to go and come to their home town in a year.

Once concession is given means you can travel for free now.

There are different rules in this too.

So fresh employees who have joined government service is different for them and those who are already serving means serving them for more than 8 years.

It is done.

There is a different rule for them.


If we talk about newly joined employees, you have done everything.

They get one chance means once in every year, they can go to their home town and come from there with their family, and the government will pay them back whatever their expenses will be, and this benefit will be given to you.

Every year.

You will get your first 8 years, which you can mail, and after 8 years you become regular employee, then, after that different rules apply on you.

What, after that, you can take HTC once in every two years.

Yes ok means once in 2 years, you can go to your hometown with your family and come back.

Friends are going to focus because under this you can go anywhere in India with your family and the government will bear all the expenses, so now.

The first point here is that for the newly recruited recruitment employees.

The rule is that they can go once in four years.

That means they can do it once and it will continue for 8 years.

That means in 8 years.

You can do it twice.

[Music] There is also a condition for them.

They can also travel once in four years.

There is a slight difference, which you will come to know later in the video.

As we move forward in the video, okay, that's it., Keep, watching all your doubts will be cleared and one more thing to add here is very important that what you are getting All India LTC is HTC If, you are getting it in four years, then one of them is HTC.

You can convert it to LDL, ok.

Now, let's talk about the most important topic, which is eligibility, here you can see.

Who are the people who are eligible for this.

Who is eligible and who is not eligible for this,? Now, if I tell you broadly, all the central government employees, all those schemes are very important, okay.

Now you can see here, even the civilian government service, as I have already told They have joined, and if they are civilian employees who are working in the defense line, that is, within the defense forces, then they are also eligible under the scheme.

Then those people who are in the state village have gone, but they are on central pay.

Deputation pay is being reduced on central government, ok.

Now it is next, it is most important.

Most of the queries come that what is railway employers, then the gas thing is that only and only all India LTC can be made available by railway employees.


It is okay for them too, but the condition is that the passes they get, but He will have to leave all that to go to his home.

If he does All India LTC for a year, then the gas is cleared here.

You can also see it here, for whom it is not applicable, then, for the railway employees, it is for HTC.

Not eligible means.

They can't avail LTC to go to hometown only they will get it for All, India and state government gas.

They have different scheme, so they don't do that.

All state has its own rules, so it has to But.

We will not go to this maximum, which you are seeing here.

You are talking related to the Central Government.


Here is another important point that you are not eligible for LTC as soon as you join.

When you are 1 year, You are eligible for LTC HTC.

Only after serving the department.

Now let us see for example.

If you are joining on 31st December 2021, man lo, then you will understand which of his next block year.


Now, let's block 2 years of man.

Ok, then block 22 and 23.

So you are eligible for that .

If, you are joining, then you complete one year on 31st December 2022.

After that you can avail it on 23rd 2013.

But if you join on 1st January in 2023, you will complete one year by December.

It will happen, but you will not be able to do it in 20-23.

You will be able to make it available in the blocks that have been blocked on 20-24, 2025., Okay, I.

Think all of you must have cleared the eligibility criteria, so we will move.


You are hearing from me that the block is of the block.

Then look at the gauge, here is the concept of the block year.

So if you want, you can read, it.

There is a block of 4 years from 22 to 25.

Now there are two blocks of 2 years, 20223 of two years and 20-24 225 of two years so gas.

Now what is there in this? If you are a fresh, cricketer, imlay or a regular employee? Ok, so here you can see the first block.

You have 2 years in that look in the option van one, so you can do that for hometown, one block care for 2s blocked and the second block What.

Is it in that you can take All India LDC or you can oppose that.

You have taken All, India LTC in the first block year for me and in the second block year you have taken HTC.

Or what can you do? All four years you can take only HTC Home Town.

It is not necessary that you have to convert to All India LTC.

If you want, you can visit your home town all the four times.

It is ok, but the option three you are seeing is only And.

Only chunri employees are valid for them.

Ok and jo option van aur, tu hai, woh aapko, regular, improvise, hai, hai, woh, gage, aayi, ho aap log, ko block kar concept, bhi clear, ho, gaya hoga, simple aap, isko, raho, agar, agar new If.

You are a record recruitment employee.

Then you can get it every year for the first 8 years and twice in 8 years, you can get All India LTC.

Now you can get that in your 4 years.

You can get it on any year.

Now here is another concept: Aata aayi wo carry forward of LTC ab, carry forward kya hota hai ki agar, like once in four years for 4 years.

You have to do it now, man, lo a If.

You are not able to do it in four years.

Then what will be said,? If you are a new recruit, then if you are not able to do it in 4 years or in a particular year, then your benefit scheme is left.

You had to do it in 25 and India LTC, but if you could not do it, then Twenty Twenty, Six, also Usko, usse, kar kar ho means one year carry forward you get.

If you are a regular employee, then it is okay.

So this is the only concept of carry forward ab gas.

You people are hearing again and again that you can carry family, but family Who defines the family, who are included in the term.

Then what is it, if you want, you can read it.

Completely, I have given it in detail here, but here I try to understand you in easy terms.

The first thing has happened that if your spouse is five or husband, if he is dependent on you, then he has already become your family, here.

The most important word is gauge.

He is dependent.

., As I have told now.

If your wife or husband is not working, then your children come in the family, up to two children, okay, not more than two children.

If they are included in this screen, then it comes to your parents.

So parents will be considered within the family only if their income is less than ₹ 9000, then only they will be included.


If your parents are not doing anything, it is okay.

If it is less than 9000, then they are also your dependent, and if your younger brother is there, then he is also dependent on you.

If he is studying now and is not doing anything else, 99 I think this definition will be valid.

In % of the cases, so friend, I told you the meaning of family.

Now we move on to the body.

So now the next topic is in title.


Now, as I told you in the beginning of the video.

You can see the comments and replies at different levels.


If I tell you in the same words, like five to billo, then you will get the maximum third year.

One fare as reimbursement, so you go to 11.


One you will get t year, then such van year, 12 13, and on top of that only ac1 is running.

Nothing happens above first year, then it will remain the same.

Similarly, you can see if you steamer on river, at 80, etc or If.

You are traveling in steep, etc.

then what about it,? Then? You should see all these gas very well, props have been given here in the slide, by pausing it properly.

According to your level.

Watch it carefully, I will not talk much in this, otherwise the video will become very long.


This is journey by sea and river has become next.

Journey by road .


You will get remson for the same benefit, and here the most important thing is the journey by air and as it is seen here, you people start from the nine level itself.

It is not less than that, so travel, but nothing.

To go to a special place.

You will also get ad travel, which is under the special relaxation scheme.

So we will see it, after a while.

You can see the entertainment on the gaze.

Here, read it comfortably, whatever you want to see, see it by doing POS.


Now, let's move on to the next topic, which is a special relationship.

It gets the facility to go by flight, inside these special regions.

You can also go with flight to four places with your family and the cost of going there and coming.

Government will give you, and this gauge, like I, told you once in four years.

You will get this facility and that's it.

You will get this facility only for four regions and there is no upper limit for it.

It has been said that you book flight 21 days in advance.

There is a different way.

Now I will talk about it, it is okay, but whatever your expenses are for you.

Whether, it is ₹, 40000, 50000 or ₹.

80000, no limit has been imposed on the income of the family, because many times what happens is that the flight charges are very high.

So it is not that the government will limit the members to a limit.

No memorandum has yet come in this that what is the unlimited limit, then you will get it, okay.

Now there is also a point in this which is important.

If you understand it carefully, because it is LTC or HTC, it is available only to them.

The one who is not posted in his home or hometown is ok.

Now, if your hometown and your headquarter means I will take man from kolkata and I have got kolkata only joining then neither I will get LTC benefit.

Nor will I get htc benefit.

Will get means you will not get anything, then keep this thing in mind, see between some particular points.

Yes, you can take flight.

Ok, now like.

If you have to go to north east region anywhere, then from where you can board for flight, you can board from kolkata or guwahati.

It is not that you can board from anywhere.

Yes, you mean, like I told you here now: You cannot go directly from Ranchi, same thing from North East region.

If you want to go to Port Blair, you will have to take a flight from Kolkata, Chennai or Visakhapatnam.

Only then you will have full dream bursement.

Then you will say that today, I am sir, here: I am from Kolkata., I want to go to Jammu and Kashmir is the distance that you are in your entitled.

Class means.

If you are in level four or five, then you can go in third tier one from there to there and then take a flight from Delhi to Ladakh.

Where Wherever you want to go, anywhere in Jammu and Kashmir or anywhere in Ladakh.

You can go there, you will get reimbursement for that, but if you take a man, you go directly to Jammu and Kashmir from here, directly from Kolkata.

Then what will happen in that? You will get the claim.

The claim you will get will be the reimbursement.

You will get the airfare from Delhi to Kashmir, where you will register till there, and whatever your internal class will be.

It will be given to you.

So even if you go on diet, you will get the same.


Fer, reverse hoga, jo aapko, internet class, hai plus jo jis point Now.

Another important point is that you can book your air tickets from anywhere like there are many online platforms like goibibo, makemytrip, so you can book your air tickets from anywhere.

For, which special companies have been authorized by the government.

You will have to book from them, okay, and here are these three companies or travel agents.

So let's see, first of all, Balmer Lowry & Co., Ltd.

Second, is your Ashok.

Travels,! Third, is your IRCTC,? You all must know about this.

Then you have to book your friends tickets.

Through these three authorized agencies, only, then your investment will be done.

Now how to book.

This is a very big topic.


This is related to how you have to book flights and how you can register, for this.

I will make another video only after that it is okay in continuous, because you have come to know all this.

But if you want to book flight So, you will need those things only.

Without that it will not happen.

First of all.

You have to create your pride mail id.

Then you have to register, and even after that many things happen, its booking stalls are there in three-three hours, within that you have to book and whatever you want, Chips will remain fire.

He has to do evil of the booking stall and whatever screenshot or a print option comes, he has to print it as well.

Now, I am going to tell you all this very well in the next video, because man, this video is just LG.

It was only for the information of this.

I will tell you the next video, watch his gas and for that friend, stay connected with our channel, subscribe and also turn on the notification bell, so that as soon as he uploads a new video, you will get the notification, so gas, Aaj, ke, video, mein, bas, itna, hi, kyunki, alreadyi, video bahut, badi, ho chuchi, hai, ok, aur, zida time waste, aapka, nahi, karonga, main aur, I, hope, ki, aapko samjh me gaya hoga, full process, agar nahi, aaya to aap comment, section, usse, kar, sakte, ho to ok, Hai gas ab meet ke.
