LFC advance and bill sanction
I Applied for LTC Advance dated 12.04.2018 for the amount Rs 469000/- and Sanctioning Authority sanctioned 90 percent of the applied amount i.e. Rs 422350/-.
Bill amount is Rs 430000/- however sanctioning authority sanctioned Rs 377657 dated 04.07.2018.
• Boarding Point: Eligibility on the date 10.04.2018 was 469000 from
Bhavnagar and on the date 04.07.2018 was Rs.377657/- from Ahmedabad.
Eligibility is to be considered from Boarding point not from nearest Airport is the view of Controllers
Difference in the eligibility is due to the consideration of Boarding Point
Given Officers service rule 17.6.5, nearest Airport from Botad on the shortest air route (Botad to Portblair), is Bhavnagar (83 KM) on which LFC advance was sanctioned however Bill sanctioning authority considered Ahmedabad as Nearest Airport which is more than 160 km from Botad.
Rest of the employees who travelled with me, with their families, posted at different RBOs were sanctioned full eligibility amount and bills were sanctioned accordingly. Mr Kamal Kumar Sippy, having same family members as of mine, from Rajkot was sanctioned LFC bill of Rs 476000/- and he also boarded from Ahmedabad.
Further controlling authorities at my RBO sanctioned the HTC bill of my previous Branch Manager Mr Prabodh Chander whose eligibility they considered from Bhavnagar instead of Ahmedabad for Chandigarh however he boarded from Ahmedabad.
Controllers are considering shortest route from Ahmedabad i.e. Boarding point for Bill Sanction and Chief Manager sanctioned LFC advance considering shortest route from Bhavnagar.
I spent rupees from the advance sanctioned and now recovery is under process of Rs 44000/-

This is to inform you that I boarded from Ahmedabad instead of nearest airport Bhavnagar with other members of SBI group who travelled with me. They also boarded from Ahmedabad instead of their nearest Airport. Their eligibility was calculated from the nearest airport from their postings instead of Ahmedabad.
Controllers stand on my LFC sanction contradicts their earlier sanction of LTC of previous BM (copy is with me) who boarded from Ahmedabad however his eligibility was considered from Bhavnagar to Chandigarh via Mumbai.
Controllers are of the view that Boarding point is to be considered for calculation of eligibility instead of Nearest airport on Shortest Air Route .
I have lodged my grievance on Public Grievance portal of Government after lodging the grievance at internal grievance mechanism.
Resolution is under process at both ends.

Even after passing of 5 months no resolution has been provided by bank.
I approached CPGRAMS and internal grievance redressal mechanism both.
One officer's (posted in my branch) Eligibility for LTC Advance was calculated from Bhavnagar and he boarded from Ahmedabad and bills were sanctioned accordingly.
In My case, Eligibility for LFC advance was calculated from Bhavnagar and I also boarded from Ahmedabd but bill sanctioning authority reduced my eligibility as I boarded from Ahmedabad instead of Bhavnagar.
Other colleagues bills also sanctioned and they also boarded from Ahmedabad instead from nearest airport.
Given above considerations, if Ahmedabad as boarding point is considered for eligibility than my BM's LTC sanction is wrong and if Bhavnagar as boarding point is considered for eligibility than my LFC sanction is wrong.
This contradiction at the end of Sanctioning Authority is not clear even after passing of 5 months and issue of fresh circular by bank. Please guide so that I can decide future course of action.
Now should I file Writ Petition or Legal Notice.
My Loss is of around 44000. Given the amount of loss how much I can gain after incurring all legal expenses from bank.
