I am also availing kolkata to guwahati LTC-80 fare. But as per 6th Jan fare chart published by Indian airlines which is supposed to be the latest fare fare is only 2575/- whereas on 23rd March the fare is 3730/- when I asked the Indian airline operator but new fare chart is not available in the net. So Our office is following the old rate only and passing it. I am at financial loss.
can u give me the details if LTC 80 is same as LTC Q
LTC80 fare list must be updated continuously to avoid problem faced by Central Govt employee. Thank you.
please inform me.
1. The list of fares as published on the website of Air India, as on Dec 2008 is out dated/old and has not been updated since long. One of my collegue enquired from the Air India office Kolkata, the fares for Kolkata -Delhi Sector, he was surprised to find that the fare published in the list of the web site was almost Rs 800/- less than communicated by the Air India office, KolKata.
2. May I request you to kindly help me with the latest fare under LTC-80 in KOLKATA-PORT BLAIR sector after consulting Air India office.
all central govt officials having the same problem but still now air india or ministry of finance exp-co-ordination div sleeping. simple problem they are not able to solvw then who wiil solve it
I am going to travel from Ahmedabad to Bagdogara by indian airlines. I have same problem my tickets booked under LTC Q class from Delhi - Bagdogara & same as return journey. My office restricted me as per old LTC 80 fare. I dont get the difference between LTC 80 & LTC Q class
All LTC fair charged by Air India under LTC80 are fully reimbursed. Send ur bills to Principal a/c office tech. branch 4 clarification through ur PAO. u will definitely get justice
Everyone proceeding on LTC by AIR should ensure that in the ticket LTC 80 is written. If LTC 80 is written on the ticket, PAO is bound to pass the bill for the full amount.
Air India LTC-80 fares is very old. Currently Airindia are issueing tks endorsed as X class/LTC80. Therefore govt dept should refund the entire fare. However a certificate by station manager stating that X-class fares are actually LTC-80 should suffice. However appeal to Mr bhargava and Hon min of civil aviation to publish revised LTC-80 fares.
Actually the fare of Indian Airlines remains below the LTC 80 fare, if booked well in advance. Indian Airlines fare remains high during festive seasons and busy months like April - May; October, December & January.
Further, most of the central govt employees complained above didn't tell when did they travel and how many days before their journeys they had booked their tickets.
To avoid such less payment, it would be better to avoid journey on LTC during such months and to plan & book the tickets well in advance (at least 2-3 months before) like railway tickets.
Hope this may help some central govt. employees.

I want to inform that after a long time now the link which was given in dopt letter of 1 dec 2009 " " is working. I hope there is no problem occur with AO. We should insist to see this link whichis given in dopt letter.
