It has been learnt that proposals for obtaining Air Travel Permission for non-entitled officials on official duties submitted by the Departments to the General Administration Department are mostly devoid of sufficient information thereby resulting in considerable delay in their consideration.

It is reiterated that all heads of departments should let the officials under their control perform the official tours in their respective entitled classes and not resort to air travel for the non entitled officials as a matter of course.

Applications for Air Travel Permission for non entitled officials on genuine grounds should be supported by the information as per the format enclosed without which the applications are liable to be summarily rejected.
