1 comment:

  1. Can a central govt officer claim LTC to anywhere up to his retirement in July 2016 or he is allowed only hometown LTC. The confusion arises because the rule says hometown once in a block of 2 years and anywhere once in a block of 4 years? Can someone quote the relevant rule please?
