(5) When two or more government servants jointly hire a motor car, motor truck, motor carrier or jeep car having a seating capacity of five or more and use it for a road journey, they will draw the actual fare paid by them for the road journey or road mileage allowance under rule 23(B)(2), whichever is less. The daily allowance to which they may be entitled will also be admissible to each of them.
