No boarding passes for claiming TA for Gov’t officers


Government officers will find it a little easier to enjoy annual leaves now. They will no longer need to submit boarding passes while claiming travelling allowance (TA). They will merely need to give an undertaking that they took the journey informed the department of personnel and training (DoPT), reports Times of India.

It has been decided with the approval of the competent authority that in order to simplify the procedure of settlement of TA claims, the condition of submission of boarding pass along with settlement of TA claim is dispensed with…however, the officer concerned, preferring travelling allowance, will have to attach an undertaking alongwith TA claims that the journey, as mentioned therein, has actually been performed by him/her,” said a DoPT order issued on Tuesday.

The order further clarified that “notwithstanding the above, in case of extreme doubt, the controlling officer may be asked to verify the genuineness of the claim”.
