Is there any order that restrict me to buy air ticket only for AI or Indian Airline or my office ask me to furnish any certificate from govt. airline that on a perticuler date no tickets are available with us. kindly guide me.

  12. Extension for 2 years of LTC NR and J&K by central government is really appreciable matter but restriction regarding financial assistance is a unfavorable.
    Govt has decided to develop the North East and J& K as well as air india economically by way of govt employees to provide financial assistance for air tickets which is insufficient. I would like humbly request to central govt organization to either remove the restriction or to increase the financial assistance which will be real expenditure for overall travel as well accommodation etc to avoid inconvenience of any grade of govt employee.
