In an Office Memorandum, the Department of Expenditure under the Finance Ministry today said that several references are being received by various quarters in the Department to do away with the condition of submission of Boarding Pass with the TA claims.

“The matter has been considered in this Department and it has been decided that in case, a Government servant is unable to submit the Boarding Pass alongwith TA Bill, he can submit a self-declaration certificate in lieu of Boarding Pass alongwith TA Bill. The proforma for self certification is enclosed as Annexure. The proforma needs to be countersigned by the Controlling Officer in case of officials below the Under Secretary level (i.e. from Pay level 10 and below),” it said.

However, there is a rider. The officer concerned will have to give an undertaking, along with TA claim, that the journey, as mentioned therein, has actually been performed by him or her.

However, the officer below Pay level 11 is required to submit the self-declaration certificate with a countersignature by the the Controlling Officer, the memorandum said.TST
