Me and my husband are Central Govt. Employees working in the same Organisation, Ordnance Factory. From the recent amendments in LTC rules what I understood is Both Wife and Husband can encash a maximum of 10 days EL (in one spell) irrespective of who is availing the LTC ( i want to proceed on LTC with my Husband and child. I have given the declaration that I will be availing LTC, not my husband. Since I don't have much leave to encash, my husband wants to encash his 10 days leave. But i was informed that he can not encash since he is not the one availinf LTC.)Pl. Clarify

The definition of family should be elaborated as two serviving children may be meant as two children only (May be out of four serviving children)or in case of four serviving children none of the children would be eligible to avail LTC benifit.

In swamy's handbook, it states that an official appointed on 31.12.2006 will be eligible for the two year block 2006-07, but those appointed on or after 1.1.2007, will not be elibible for that block.
If so, a direct recruit Assistant appointed on 7.7.2008, will he be eligible for LTC for the block year 2008-09.
