Tiruchi District Pensioners’ Association has urged the State government to sanction leave travel concession (LTC) to pensioners once in two years. A resolution passed at its meeting held here recently said the LTC was equivalent to one month’s pension and Punjab had introduced the scheme to benefit pensioners. Another resolution said that a few states like Bihar and Madhya Pradesh had stopped the recovery of commutation from the pension and wanted similar benefit to be extended to the pensioners in Tamil Nadu. K. Pazhaniyandi, president, presided over the meeting.
