If LTA is in your CTC (cost to company) package, company should pay you this amount every year.

If your taxable income including LTA amount is not taxable, company should pay you LTA without deducting any tax, whether you claim for it or not. In this case LTA will be provided to you like other non-taxable allowances (special allowance/basic salary etc)

But if your taxable income including LTA is exceeding non-taxable range and you claim for LTA, this amount will be non-taxable twice in a block of four years.
