7th CPC Recommendations on LTC
Analysis and Recommendations
8.15.30 Extension of LTC to foreign countries is not in the ambit of this Commission.
8.15.31 The proposal to split hometown LTC has merit and can be considered. Hence, it is recommended that splitting of hometown LTC should be allowed in case of employees posted in North East, Ladakh and Island territories of Andaman, Nicobar and Lakshadweep. This will enable these employee and their families to meet more often.
