        Hi Rajesh,

        LTA has to be claimed in the same year you travelled. To submit your claim in FY 2020-21 you must have travelled in 2020.

        Hi Naishadh,

        Please note that you cannot claim LTA in every financial year. It can be claimed only for two journeys in a block of 4 years.
