    How the travel allowance is calculated for a railway employee?

    I am a railway employee. I work in electric department. I often have to travel in trains in train coaches. I want to know that how can I calculate the travel allowance of each tour? Does it differ with distances?

    Dear Aspirant,

    Travelling allowances is paid to the employees in order to meet the extra expenses incurred in tour for official purposes.It is the reimbursement of the expenses on tour for official purposes.There are mainly two types of expenses,one is for fare & next is for fooding.Since you are travelling by train,so you are not entitle to claim for fare expenses.You can claim local expenses by auto for coming to duty from your residance,if you are staying away from railway station.

    Next is daily allowances.It is paid on the basis of your grade pay & place of travel.If you are on tour for more than 6 hrs to 12 hrs from your head quarter,you are entitle to get 1/2 of the normal applicable daily allowances for your grade pay & place of tour.If you are absent for than 12 hrs to 24 hrs from your head quarter,you are entitle to claim full daily allowances applicable to your grade pay.The daily allowances is calculated for a particular day which means of 24 hrs.If you leave your residence for offfice purpose at 8.00AM,It will be counted till next day 8.00AM for 24 hrs.

    In order to know in details,you may contact your account section.

    Thanks.

    Hello Friend,

    When You Go For The Official Tour Than You Get The Travel Allowance For Your Department,
    >> For This Collect Your Bills For The Travels And Calculated All
    >> After Calculation Submit That Bills With Travel Allowance Form (As Govt Rules)
    >> After The Verification You Get The Allowance
    >> But That Process May Takes Few Days......
