Central officers in Pay Level 9 to 11 allowed to get travelling charges in tour city without production of vouchers

New Delhi: The Central government has allowed it’s officers in Pay Level 9 to 11 to get local travelling charges in tour city without production of vouchers under Daily Allowance on tour.

Central government officers in Pay Level 9 to 11 will not have to furnish receipts/vouchers to claim reimbursement of local travelling charges admissible under Daily Allowance on tour.

The Department of Expenditure (DoE), Ministry of Finance in a recent Office Memorandum (O.M.) said the officers in Pay Level 9 to 11 will not have to furnish receipts/vouchers to claim reimbursement of local travelling charges admissible under Daily Allowance on tour.

The officers will, however, be required to furnish self-certification with details like the period of travel and the vehicle number etc. to get the reimbursement.

The DoE had received several references regarding difficulties being faced by the officers in Pay Level 9 to 11 for production of receipts/vouchers while claiming reimbursement of travelling charges for travel within the city admissible under Daily Allowance on Tour as per the department’s O.M. dated 13-07-2017.

The O.M. dated 13-07-2017 on “Travelling Allowance Rules — Implementation of 7th CPC” had prescribed reimbursement for travelling charges for travel within the city admissible under Daily Allowance on Tour. This O.M. had allowed Central Government Employees in Level 8 and below to claim reimbursement of travelling charges without production of vouchers against self-certification. Officers in Level 9 and above had to produce vouchers.

Thus, in order to remove the complications the condition of production of receipts/vouchers for officers in Pay Level 9 to 11, is done away with.

The recent O.M. read, “The matter has been considered in this Department and it has been decided that for reimbursement of Travelling Charges admissible under Daily Allowance on tour as mentioned in Para 2E(i) of OM dated 13.07.2017, condition of production of receipts/vouchers for officials in Pay Level 9 to 11, is done away with subject to furnishing of self-certification in which officials have to indicate the period of travel, vehicle Number etc.”
