Subject : Reimbursement of charges for train ticket booking through “Internet” for railway journeys undertaken for official purpose/LTC.
The Indian Railways have introduced booking of railway tickets through ‘Internet’, and a number of representations from different Ministries have been received in this Ministry to extend this facility to Government employees while undertaking official journey/LTC.
The matter has been considered in this Ministry and it has been decided that reimbursement of charges for booking of rail tickets through Internet/e-ticketing, booked through the website of Indian Railways, may be allowed only for railway journeys undertaken for official tours and LTC.
In their application to the staff serving in the Indian Audit & Accounts Department, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.
