Central Govt. employees may get special LTC package for Jammu & Kashmir

A special incentive to boost tourism in Jammu and Kashmir is being finalised by the Centre ahead of the PM’s visit to the Valley next month. Central government employees wanting to travel to Jammu and Kashmir on leave will soon be able to avail of a special LTC (Leave Travel Concession) package for Jammu and Kashmir. Proposed along the lines of a similar and hugely successful initiative for the Northeastern states, this will entitle Central government employees to fly to the state for a vacation along with their immediate family. The proposal is being finalised by a Committee of Secretaries and is likely to be announced before the Prime Minister’s visit, sources said.
They said the incentive was aimed at encouraging more people to travel to Jammu and Kashmir and increasing people to people contact with the residents of the Valley. The move is also likely to generate revenue for the state from tourism and result in some income for Air India.
The incentive would be valid for travel to any of the three regions of the state —- Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
