Travelling Allowance (TA) for SSB and AFSB Interview

Travelling Allowance (TA) for SSB

If you are going for a SSB Interview, you will get Travelling allowance(TA) from Indian government not only that your accommodation and food will be free of cost once you enter the SSB Centre. But there have been few changes in the travelling allowance(TA) scheme lately.

All candidates do get free accommodation and food, but, all are not eligible for traveling allowance. According to the new policy, one is eligible for TA only twice i.e Permanent commission (PC) entry and short service commission (SSC) entry, irrespective to the type of service ( Army, Navy and Airforce).
