this will make cumpultion to each and every disabled employee to travel with concessional ticket. whether he want to avail or not. secondly, each and every disabled employee don't having concession certificate, don't travel with concessional tickets and also denial of conccession tickets at the railway counter should be taken on note. as the government is cutting subsidies and concession and other way they are asking to purchase a concession ticket!

I don't see any problem with clause "C", if you can get the benefit of
concessional ticket,  you should purchase, it will be helpful to the
government as the government will have to spend less on your travel.

No. 19030/3/2013-E.IV
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
North Block, New Delhi. Dated the 17th February, 2015.
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject:- Travelling Allowance in respect of Attendant/Escort for
accompanying a Government Servant with Disabilities on travel during
tour/training etc.

#
References have been received in the Ministry of Finance, Department of
Expenditure seeking provision in the Rules/instructions regulating
Travelling Allowance,
in order to allow grant of Travelling Allowance to the Government servant
with Disabilities in respect of an Attendant/Escort accompanying such a
Government
servant with Disabilities during travel while on tour/training, etc. At
present there are no provisions in the Travelling Allowance rules which
allows
Government servants to claim Travelling Allowance in respect of
Attendant/Escort accompanying them on tour/ training, etc. where such
Government servants
require the assistance of an Attendant/Escort for travel.
2.
The matter has been considered and it has now been decided to allow
Travelling Allowance in respect of the Attendant/Escort, for accompanying a
Government
servant with Disabilities during travel while on tour/training, etc., to be
claimed by the Government servant with Disabilities. The admissibility of
Travelling
Allowance, in respect of the Attendant/Escort accompanying a Government
servant with Disabilities, would be subject to the following conditions:
(a)
Ordinarily, the field offices/local administrative offices at the touring
station, which the Government servant with Disabilities is required to
visit
on tour or training institutes where the Government servant with
Disabilities is required to undergo training, would be required to provide
an Attendant/Escort,
from the existing pool of staff/persons employed, from the time the
Government servant with Disabilities arrives at the destination and till
such time
the Government servant with Disabilities departs from that destination back
to his headquarter station/place from where the Government servant with
Disabilities
had initially proceeded to that destination. During travel abroad, either on
foreign tour/training, the Indian Missions/Posts (Embassy of India) at the
country of visit would be required to . provide an Attendant/Escort, from
the existing pool of staff/persons ^employed, during the period of stay of
the
Government servant with Disabilities in that country.
(b)
Only when field offices/local administrative offices at the touring station or training institutes or Indian Missions/Posts at the country of visit, as
the case may be, officially express their inability to provide an
Attendant/Escort to the visiting Government servant with Disabilities, would
the claim
of Travelling Allowance in respect of Attendant/Escort accompanying the
Government servant with Disabilities arise. In such cases, fare for travel
of Attendant/Escort
accompanying Government servant with Disabilities would be reimbursed. While
for travel by air, Airlines-are expected to provide assistance to
Government
servant with Disabilities during travel as per Airlines policies, a
Government servant with Disabilities however, can take along his personal
Attendant/Escort
for travel by Indian Railways for assistance during journey and
boarding/deboarding, even when an Attendant/Escort at destination station is
provided officially.

(c)
In all cases, Government servant with Disabilities are required to purchase travel tickets for self and Attendant/Escort at concessional rates, if any,
offered by Railways/Airlines.
(d)
The facility of Travelling Allowance for the Attendant/Escort would only be
admissible to those Government servants with Disabilities, wherein it is
certified
by the competent Medical Authority that such a person compulsorily requires
assistance of another person for travel. Under this clause, necessary
certificate
is to be obtained from the Head of Department of a Government Civil Hospital designated for the type/form of disability of the Government servant. Based
on the certificate from competent Medical Authority, Heads of Departments
would have to further satisfy the need for an Attendant/Escort during
travel
of the Government servant, before allowing the journey for the
Attendant/Escort.
(e)
Subject to clause (d) above, Travelling Allowance for the Attendant/Escort
would be admissible to the Government servant with Disabilities while on
tour
(domestic or foreign). However, the authority deputing such a Government
servant with Disabilities on tour would have to record in writing that the
tour
is considered necessary in the discharge of duties and responsibilities
assigned to the Government servant with Disabilities.
(f)
Subject to clause (d) above, Travelling Allowance for the Attendant/Escort
would also be admissible to the Government servant with Disabilities when
deputed
on training provided it is recorded by the authority competent to depute
such officials on training that such training is a mandatory training for
career
progression or induction training for probationers.
(g)
Travelling Allowance consists of two parts; Mileage Allowance and Daily
Allowance. No Daily Allowance would be admissible to the Attendant/Escort of
the
Government servant with Disabilities. Mileage Allowance would be admissible
to the Attendant/Escort at the same rate and in the same class of
accommodation,
as the Government servant with Disabilities is entitled to under the Revised
Travelling Allowance Rules, read with travel restrictions imposed under
austerity
measures/economy instructions, issued from time to time by the Government.
However, in case of travel by any of the modes of conveyance by road, as
prescribed
under the Travelling Allowance rules, no separate mileage allowance would be
admissible to the Government servant with Disabilities, in respect of the
Attendant/Escort, except where the travel is by public bus.
(h)
For commuting between residence to office and back, certain categories of
Government servants with Disabilities are eligible for Transport Allowance
at
double the normal rates. As no Travelling Allowance is admissible to.
Government servants for training at headquarter station, consequently, no
claim of
Travelling Allowance to the Attendant/Escort of the Government servant with
Disabilities would be admissible for training at headquarter station.
3.
In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are
concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller &
Auditor
General of India.
