Renault India says that the schemes come in line with the measures taken by the Government of India, by introducing Leave Travel Concession or LTC cash voucher for the government employees.
On 12th October 2020, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a slew of measures in a bid to boost consumption in the Indian economy that has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The federal government announced LTC cash voucher scheme for its employees, with which they can purchase goods and services in lieu of the tax-exempt part of the Leave Travel Concession/Leave Travel Allowance (LTA/LTC). The employee can claim tax-exemption on the travel fare encashed if the amount is spent by complying with specified preset conditions.
However, to avail these schemes, a government employee needs to spend an amount equal to the value of leave encashment and an amount three times of the cash equivalent of deemed fare, on purchased items or availed services. Also, the transaction has to be done through the digital mode before 31st March 2021 on goods or services purchase that attracts 12% or more GST. Also, the employee has to obtain a voucher indicating the GST number and the amount of GST paid to purchase the goods or services.
