    First and foremost, Transfer TA will be admisible only if the distance of your present office in New Delhi is more than 20 km from the new office in Ghziabad where you have been transferred. Assuming that the distance is more than 20 km, the admissible amount is indicated below:-

    (a) Composite grant: 80% of the Basic Pay
    (b)(i) If the family of Govt. employee travels by public transport: Reimbursement as per entitlement (Train or Bus)
    (b) (ii) If the family travels by road: Reimbursement of road mileage as per entitlement (By Taxi:@Rs. 14/- per km; By Auto:@Rs. 12/- per km)

    In addition, the Govt. employee is entitled to get reimbursement for transportation of personal effect as per following rate:
    [Level-12 or above] Entitled 6000 kg by goods train/4-wheeler wagon/ one single container : Rs. 50/- per km
