Dear sirs LTC for the fresh recruits as per 6CPC states that allowed to travel to their home town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and any place in India on the forth occasion. This facility shall be available to the Government officers only for the first two blocks of four years. Here I need our friends clarification that this facility facilitates a new recruit to avail LTC for the initial eight years or four years continuously. Because as per current LTC rule a block of four years have two block years and as the new rule states only for the block of first of two blocks of four years. 2. Dear friend New LTC rules effective from 1/9/2008 for direct recruits are applicable to all those who have not completed eight years of service till that date. MoF has recently given a clarification in reply to MHA query, in this regard. Now regarding your query, it is to inform that there is no change in Block Year already prescribed. In brief, the current Block year for LTC is 200609(i.e.2006-07 and 2008-09), this will remain the same for all including direct recruits. Suppose if some one has joined in 2007 then he can take one year LTC for Home Town for 2008 and 2009 on each occassion or he may avail one Home Town and One all India LTC for 2008-09. Again for the next Block Year of 2010-2013, he can avail three Home Town and one All India LTC and so on till completion of 8 years of service subject to other conditions. Similarly who have joined in 2005, his LTC for the Block Year up to 2007-08 has been completed. But for the remaining 5 years he can avail one+one for 2009-10 and three home town or two home town+1 all India for the next three years. I think It is sufficient to satisfy you. with regards Jitendra 3.

Dear friend, What you have missed is that "A Block of Two Year" represents LTC to Home Town in a Block of 4 years. Normally, a Govt servant is allowed Two such LTC to Home Town (one in each Block of Two years ) or a combination of Home Town in the first Block of Two years and one LTC to anywhere in India, within Block of Four years. First Two Blocks of Four Years means two consecutive Blocks of Four years and Not Two LTC Home Town Block of two years". As an aside, you may notice that even though first eight years are made available, since the eligibility to avail LTC would accrue only after completion of the First year, effectively there may be only Seven LTC Home Town after initial appointment. With regards, Badri
