To, All Members,
Dear Friends,
Subject: Guide Fee w.e.f. 01 December 2015 to 30 September 2017 - Rounded off  
Kindly recall our circular dated 12th October 2015 wherein the revised Guide Fee effective from 01 December 2015  to 30th September 2017 was circulated.
To facilitate easy calculation, this has now been put in a rounded figure and the same is enclosed for your easy reference.
Also, there was along pending demand from the Guide’s Association for additional conveyance charges which we were paying in Delhi already, also to be paid in cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata and Jaipur. This was approved by the IATO Guide Committee and EC and is now applicable as given in para 6 “extra allowance”.  
Members are requested  to pay the guide fee as per the rates fixed by IATO and TGFI. Members are also requested kindly utilize the services of government approved guides in terms of Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India guidelines of 2011 for recognition of the tour operators. 
Thanking you and with best regards,
Pronab Sarkar
