Training or course of study are ordinarily conducted in the following circumstances:
(a) Pre-service training,
(b) In-service training.
2. Pre-service trainingService rules of some cadres of government servants require them to undergo long or short courses of training before they are considered competent to hold departmental posts. In some cadres the government servants are allowed to join their first posting with full pay and allowances while in others they are allowed to join their first posting as students, apprentices or on a stipend. Travelling allowance in both the above circumstances shall be regulated as below:
(1) In case where they are allowed to join their first posting with full pay and allowances they are not allowed any travelling allowance to join their first place of posting. If a government servant joins at a place other than the place where he has to undergo training he will be allowed travelling allowance at ordinary rates from the place of joining to the place of training. The place of training will be the government servants headquarters and, therefore, no daily allowance will be admissible for halt at the place of training. For all journeys undertaken in pursuance of training programme travelling allowance will be allowed at ordinary rates. Where, however, with the change in the venue of the training there is a change in the headquarters of the government servant, he will be allowed travelling allowance at transfer rates for self only, without any lump sum, and for personal effects under rule 42 (2) (I) (iii) (a) and 42 (2) (II) (iii). If, however, the government servant is allowed to maintain his family at the place of training he will be allowed to draw mileage allowance for the family also as prescribed in rule 42(2) (I) (ii) and 42(2) (II) (ii), in addition to charging travelling allowance for self and personal effects as aforesaid.
(2) In cases where the candidates are treated as apprentices or students, stipendiary or otherwise, during the period of training, no travelling allowance will be admissible either to join the first place of posting or for journeys performed during the course of training, unless otherwise provided in any Government order or orders that might have been or may be issued by the Administrative Departments of the Government in consultation with the Finance Department.
3. In-service trainingThe training undergone by a government servant any time during the tenure of his service in any institution, private or public, in or outside the State of Uttar Pradesh, but within India, during which the government servant is treated as on duty under Fundamental Rule 9(6)(b)(i),
Financial Handbook, Volume II, Parts IIIV, shall be treated as in-service training for purposes of these rules. Such a government servant will be entitled to the following travelling allowance for journeys undertaken to attend such a training:
(1) Mileage allowance at ordinary rates for journeys from the place of posting to the place of training and back:
(2) Daily allowance at full rates for the first 45 days of halt and thereafter at half of those rates for the next 135 days:
(i) If both boarding and lodging facilities are available free of charges, then the rate of daily allowance shall be one-fourth of the normal rate and if only either of the above two facilities is available free of charge, then the rate of daily allowance shall be one-half of the normal rate:
(ii) If the government servant is granted a stipend or a scholarship during the course of training the amount of stipend or scholarship shall be adjusted from the daily allowance but if the amount of stipend or scholarship is more than the total amount of daily allowance then daily allowance shall not be admissible
(iii) If the period of training exceeds 180 days, no daily allowance shall be admissible after the stay of 180 days unless specific orders are issued by the Administrative Department of the Government with the concurrence of the Finance Department under rule 27(D)(2).
3) If during the course of or on completion of the training any of the government servants concerned is posted to a station other than that from which he was deputed for training, he will be entitled to travelling allowance as for ordinary journeys from the place of training to the place of his last posting, and at transfer rates from the old place of posting to the new place of posting provided that if the government servant proceeds to the new place of posting direct from the place of training, he will be allowed travelling allowance at transfer rates from the place of training to the place of posting for self and for family and for personal effects from the place of original posting to the place of such posting at transfer rates under rule 42(1) and 42(2).
