    My question is:
    An officer travelled from Nawabshah to Islamabad in two spells. 1) From Nawabshah to Lahore by Train 2) and from Lahore to Islamabad by private taxi while claiming @Rs.10/- per km. Now what the rule say whether as officer adopt such way of travelling in two spells or he should tavelled in a single spell i.e. from NAwabshah to Islamabad via Train or Road.
    1) kindly tell us that is he allowed to claim two spells of travelling?
    2) Nawabshah to Lahore train fare.
    3) Lahore to Islamabad Private taxi.

    Waiting for your response please.

    • Dear Hafiz Bashir, I am not confirm, however according to my opinion, the same journey can be in parts in some un-avoidable situations. He can claim the TA according on the basis of two spell and if they not accept the same then he may claim the same by Train the whole journey.
