an employee’s domestic travel while on family or personal holiday.
LTA waiver can be claimed when the employer grants LTA to the employees for leave to any place in India taken by the employee and their family.
Such deductions are limited to the amount of travel expenses actually incurred by the employee. Total holiday costs are not covered, only travel costs are covered.
Required to travel within India and overseas destinations are not included in this exemption.
For example, if the employer offers an MJA of Rs.25,000, but the employee spends only Rs 20,000 on travel expenses, the deduction is limited to Rs 20,000.
For the purposes of the exemption, ‘family’ is understood as spouse and children and parents, brothers and sisters who are wholly or substantially related to you.
The exemption does not apply to more than two children of a person born after October 1, 1998. In the case of a second birth after the birth of one child, this limitation also does not apply to this restriction.
The tax rules only provide an exemption for two trips in a block of four calendar years. This block is scheduled for the current calendar year 2018-21.
The exemption is allowed only if the person claiming the deduction is also traveling. If the family is traveling alone, deduction is not allowed.
Assignment of Unclaimed MJA: If an employee did not claim an MJA in the current last block or claimed it only once, it may request one more MJA in the next block of calendar years under the employee’s eligible allocation concession rules and request an MJA -reduction to 3 trips made in the current block of years. However, in order to avail of the transfer concession scheme, one LTA exemption must be applied in respect of travel in the first calendar year of the following block.
Travel to multiple destinations: If an employee travels to multiple destinations during the same leave, the deduction can be granted only for eligible travel expenses from the point of origin to the remote destination of the holiday by the shortest possible route.
