7th Pay Commission: The move to allow central government employees to visit these countries is aimed at increasing India's footprint in the strategically important Central Asian region.
The move to allow central government employees to visit these countries is aimed at increasing India's footprint in the strategically important Central Asian region. Also, the move might help Modi government to have an adavantage in upcoming 2019 general elections.
Earlier in March, the government said that it has shelved a proposal to allow LTC to its employees to visit SAARC countries. The LTC allows grant of leave and ticket reimbursement to eligible central government employees. "A proposal of LTC facility to government employees to SAARC countries with a purpose to enhance people to people contact and boost relations in the SAARC region was examined by the government and after thorough examination of all aspects involved, the proposal was found not feasible and decided not to take it forward," Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh had said then.
The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) is a group of eight nations comprising Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. There are about 48.41 lakh central government employees, according to a latest data, reported PTI.
