    ^^ HI ^^


    ^_^ This can be considered unless you take this to your manager's desk ^_^

    ^_^
    You should talk with your colleagues and should go to the senior official formally ^_^

    ^_^
    If you do so then your benefit might be increased ^_^

    ^_^
    Its their duty to give petrol allowance for a sales executive ^_^



    ^^ Thank you ^^

    Hi. I can surely understand your problem. Nowdays Inflation is on an all time high. Everything is getting dearer by the day. The people who are suffering the most are the Middle class families.

    I think you should surely talk to your HR manager regarding this problem of yours. Or maybe the increase in petrol prices has still not come within the notice of HR manager. So you can wait for a few days and still if no action is taken you can go alone or with some of your colleagues who are facing the same problem and talk to the HR manager directly.

    You can tell him how you are facing the problem of having to spend more money on Petrol due to hike in prices and are having difficulty in managing your financial resources. Request him to increase your travel allowance by some amount according to the hike to solve this problem.

    He will surely listen to your problem and hopefully solve it as early as possible.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    As a sales manager, you need to travel mostly, if there are providing Rs.7 per km before the hike in the rate of petrol, so now you have the right to demand to increase the travelling allowance per km as there is hike in the petrol price. You must never hesitate when there is an reasonable demand and you have incurring loss because of it. You must write an application to HR manager on behalf of whole sales team state all your demand and also state the reason for the demand. I would rather suggest to attach with that application a rough estimate of losses all the sales team are incuring due to hike in price. Since it's an reasonable demand, a favour decision will be taken.

    Hello

    Yes you should talk with your manager or any higher authority regarding this.

    If you are doing work for your company you should also get that much allowance . You too have a living , you just cant spend money from your pocket everytime.

    If everyone your colleagues ,HR, Manager sit together and discuss about this topic you will get a solution that will benefit all of you.

    Thank you

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is nothing wrong to ask the manager HR to give you the higher rate of mileage charge.But it is a policy making decision of the company & the manager HR is not the authority to pay you higher mileage rate.However he can help you in making the provision to do so.So discuss the matter with your collegues & represent it jointly before the head of the management.You must ask for the same.It is your right.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello,

    Friend I know the trouble you are in.
    And the solution is nothing but that you talk to the HR team about the price hike.
    Try to give them the numbers and figures , like show them the bill f the average of the petrol required to do the job.
    Give them the petrol um receipts , so that they will know you man serious business.
    And also make sue that you tell them in future to the rices can increase , so in that case they will have to increase the travel amount and allowances.


    -Regards

    Hi Aspirant,
    Firstly I would like to say that you should formally inform to Manager that your travelling allowance is very less .
    Petrol or Diesel rate day by day grown up. So As you have mentioned that your work is totally depend upon
    Travelling . So you should get a good Travelluing Allowance, If company HR does not give Travelling Allowance,
    then you can leave it. & apply for another good company where company or organization treats you
    as its asests.
    Thanking you.....

    Hi Friend,
    As this will be affecting to all of your sales staff who uses own vehicle for travel, please discuss with all of them. With unanimous opinion please apprddsoach your higher management or HR. If you have justification properly articulated then it will be easier for management to get approval on that. So do not rush, do this bit of ground work and I hope this case would be regarded.

    Cheers!

    Yes you'll be able to formally inform your manager regarding this.How they're going to grasp your issues while not your notice.They will evidently increase your allowance consistent with the worth hikes.
    allowance and accommodation additionally they need to acquire sales executives.If they already providing accommodation well and smart.Otherwise sit down with your manager regarding this additionally.
    it is your right to induce of these allowances as a sales person.

    I will for certain perceive your downside. Nowdays Inflation is on AN all time high. Everything is obtaining dearer by the day. The those that are suffering the foremost are the center category families.

    i believe you must for certain consult with your 60 minutes manager concerning this downside of yours. or even the rise in hydrocarbon costs has still not come back among the notice of 60 minutes manager. thus you'll be able to watch for a couple of days and still if no action is taken you'll be able to go alone or with a number of your colleagues WHO face a similar downside and consult with the 60 minutes manager directly.

    you'll be able to tell him however you are facing the matter of getting to pay extra money on hydrocarbon owing to hike in costs and are having issue in managing your money resources. Request him to extend your allowance by some quantity consistent with the hike to resolve this downside.

    As a sales manager, you would like to travel largely, if there are providing Rs.7 per click before the hike within the rate of hydrocarbon, thus currently you have got the correct to demand to extend the motion allowance per click as there's hike within the hydrocarbon value. you need to ne'er hesitate once there's AN affordable demand and you have got acquisition loss attributable to it. you need to write AN application to 60 minutes manager on behalf of whole sales team state all of your demand and additionally state the explanation for the demand. i might rather counsel to connect therewith application a rough estimate of losses all the sales team are incurring owing to hike in value. Since it's AN affordable demand, a favour call are taken.

    Re: Not getting additional benefit in travelling allowance after price hike of Petrol and Diesel?

    Hello Friend,
    Yes as per your job you need to use a vehicle and company should pay for it .so in the case of hike in petrol price company should increase the allowance .every company does this.
    its only to see how much time they take to implement it if the price fluctuation is due to a temporary cause then they may not frame any permanent change in the policy and obviously pay you the extra price if you produce the proper bills.
    now secondly if the price changed is permanent or long term then they will observe for few day and then they will bring a change in the policy.you need to keep all the bills of these days upto the policy is amended .
    this oil price fluctuation is now a trend in INDIA and in every month it either increases or decreases by some amount so changing policies so frequent is not possible.
    apart from that this allowance for oil is also taxable so considering that also they fix some standard price else you may subjected to task so they cant increase it very high.
    so understand the situation,do your work ,bring this thing to the notice of management and keep all original bills intact such that at the time of claim you can produce that.
    Thank You.
