In a bid to attract more travelers and boost tourism in the heavenly state of Jammu and Kashmir, the centre has decided to offer special LTC (Leave Travel Concession) packages exclusively designed for Indian central government employees. The proposal finalized by a Committee of Secretaries is likely to be announced before the Prime Minister’s visit to the valley.
The government employees by availing this offer can visit the place with their immediate family, while on leave. The incentive is mainly aimed at encouraging more people to travel to J&K. 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 3 regions of the state - Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
