    Petrol allowance promised during interview but never reimbursed

    I have been promised petrol allowance during the interview. It is been 3 months as I am yet to receive the reimbursed petrol allowance in the salary. Should I clear the confusion or find out with the HR department for myself?

    hi
    yes friend you must go to the HR department for the negotiations related for your petrol allowances. Because there might be the case that due to over work load or by any other means they forget to provide you the allowances which were offered to you. First talk to them and then accordingly your problem will be solved

    Dear Aspirant,

    You have to see whether the promise is in writing or oral.If it is oral,need not expect to be reimbursed the amount of petrol expenses.

    In general,the perks are mentioned in the offer letter which is issued before the appointment letter after accepting the offer letter.You should see to it carefully.Also you may enquire with the other employees in same cadre whether they are getting it or not.If they are not getting,you too should not expect the same.

    Of course you may write to the manager HR quoting the promise made with you at the time of interview.But oral promise does not stand.But for your satisfaction,you can claim for it.

    If you are not entertained,you may claim travelling allowance which generally the employees do when they are outside for office works for more than 6 hrs from the head quarter.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Since you have been promised for petrol allowances and it has been 3 months already.

    You can go and ask to your HR about this and clear the confusion.

    Just go and tell them your situation. As they have promised you so there must not be any problem for them to pay you the allowances.

    It is possible that there could be any mistake in there department.

    This is quite an unprofessional thing that you have not been met the allowance promised to you by the recruiters during the interviews.It is also quite depressing when one does not get what one deserves and promised.This type of activities are source to irritation and disturbances in the work.

    Hence you should first see that this issue does not hamper your work to a great extent.Make sure that it does not reflect as reduction in your performance level.Hence do not lose focus from the work and strive hard to resolve this issue.Since this is not a big problem,so no need to worry,you can get it solved soon.

    There can be various reasons for not getting the allowance to reimburse.Hence you should first analyze them and make sure that the there is nothing wrong in them.

    -It can be that the company has changed its norms and policy regarding this issue.
    -It can be that the company is yet to decide and take some decisions in this issue.
    -It can be that there is some delay in the accounts sections.
    -It can be that there is some mistake in the accounts.
    -It can also be that you will get it at one time after certain period of time.

    So,it will be better if you first enquire and then approach the higher authority regarding this matter.Go to the accounts department of your organizations and check out about this issue.If you do not find a positive response,approach the higher authority.Discuss the issue and the problem.Reveal that you have not been met with the allowances promised during the interview.Ask what should be done and act accordingly to receive the desired allowance.

    Yes definitely you should go to the HR department or go to the manager about this issue because this is not good being with you and if you will not receive your petrol allowances then how will you manage you all expenses because inflation is being increased everyday like a flood and presently the survival is too tough with less salary and you have to tell the same thing and mention your problem to the HR department and ask them the actual reason that why they are not providing you, your allowances which were promised before joining the company and I did not receive that from last 3 months so I am not asking for last 3 months but please start providing me from this month because it is being so tough to survive with limited salary so please sir remember your promise and give me enough allowances according to the situation and inflation so I could work good in the company without any problem and tension and perform well for the profit of the company but if I would not receive it then it would be harder for me to work for a long time in this company so please sir give allowances

    All the best
