The Finance Department said in a statement that during the Corona epidemic, when the lockdown was in force throughout the country, transportation was at a standstill, the hotels were closed, during which the Delhi government felt that the government employees could not go anywhere in the country or go to their home town. So these employees could not even take their LTC for the period 2018-21. Therefore, the Delhi government has decided to give cash in lieu of LTC to the employees so that they are encouraged and consumption expenditure also increases.
Rs 20,000 will be given to those employees who are entitled to economy class

At the same time, Rs 20,000 will be given to those employees who are entitled to economy class. In the final, the employees who are entitled to any category of rail fares will get Rs 6000.
On the other hand, to encourage government employees, the Delhi government has decided that special festival packages will be provided in advance to employees on festivals by 31 March 2021. Under this initiative, the package amount will be 10 thousand rupees, which will be interest free. This amount will be given in advance to the employees. Earlier this provision was only for non-gazetted employees, now it will be applicable for both gazetted and non-gazetted employees.
