    Being charged a fix amount every month by company for facilities at office

    In every one or the other company whether its a private or government organisation, employees are facilitated on grounds of refreshment like tea coffee for free. But in my company which a private one employees are charged a fix amount of RS 200 which is deducted from salary every month either you take those facility or not. Is this kind of behaviour correct?

    Dear friend -according to your statement the information added company deducts every month rs.200/- as it serves tea/cofee for refreshment.more over it is mandatory deduction if the employee is not habituated with tea/cofee drinking his/her salaries to be deducted also.

    This facility is is provided by your company is chargeable.so it is very bad any kind of habituated thing should not be mandatory to use and chargeable.ok those who like and opt the facility but those employee did not want to take drink like tea/cofee must not be charged.

    As far as i am concerned many more pvt/psu/govt companies issues subsidy coupon they do not charge paise from employee those who like to absent from such habits rather they issue subsidised coupon or benefit freely.

    So dear your company is not doing exactly so you unitedly stop such facility provided by the company for example you can compare the issue with other company.

    Thank you,

    Hello,

    Well many companies have these kinds of deductions in there companies.
    Now in this kind of a situation you have 2 choices.

    Choice No 1:
    You can talk to the HR department of your company about your situation and see if they can do anything to help you out in this.
    So thats the option no 1.
    Just tell the authorities , write a formal letter if you have to.

    Choice No 2 :
    The second choice is to adapt and improvise.

    1. Adapt
    Try enjoying those things and be a part of it.

    2.Improvise

    Give suggestions to make it a good thing , by adding nice snacks and stuff , which people will love.

    Now friend here choice is yours , you have to decide.

    -Regards

    respected sir,
    it is not correct to deduce money from your salary for tea and snacks because it is the duty of company to provide these items.most of the companies in india even provide cool drinks for their employees they use to keep separate canteens for employees there every thing will be free for employees.it is bad situation to see this in your company

    Hi. No this kind of behaviour is certainly not correct. The companies should provide refreshments to the employees on a daily basis for Free without any charges as the employees need to work throughout the day and they surely need something to re-energize them during the lunch break.

    As the employeess need energy to continue working thus they require these refreshments to energize them during the lunch break. After all they want this to do the company's work so the company should provide them for free.

    Of coz you can bring your own lunch also if your company has such strict rules but i dont think charging for refreshments is the correct method .

    You should try to contact the higher authorities and try to complain them about this. Hopefully they will look into this matter and do full justice.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    Dear, asker it is not correct to deduct money from your salary for taking tea or for any refreshment items .from every staff because we have seen from our childhood that some people have the habit of carrying tiffin with them they don't like to take anythings from outside. So please check it carefully before taking any action. I hope if you will complain for this they will stop deducting money from your salary. In the case of a government employee they get this things for free even it is not included in their allowance but it is added in the book of expenses. Good luck
