Ministry of Defence
Subject : Instructions regarding prior permission by officers/officials of MoD for private visits abroad on leave.
While processing the applications of the officers/officials of this Ministry for the purpose of issuing permission for their personal visit abroad, it has been noticed that the applications are submitted at short notice leaving little time to process their case by the Establishment Division.
2. In this regard, it needs to be mentioned that processing of such applications involve prior clearances from Cash Section, Vigilance Section and Security Office which consume substantial time.
3. In order to avoid delays in processing of such cases, it has been decided that henceforth officers/ officials would submit their application in the prescribed proforma (copy enclosed) at least a month prior to their date of departure.
4. This issues with the approval of the Competent Authority.
