    Senior bank official travelled in the third class in the airplane and pocketed the difference amount that was issued to him as travelling allowance

    I work with a government bank and came to know about an unethical deed committed by another senior official. He was giving first class air tickets for travelling to attend a meeting. He intelligently cancelled the first class tickets and travelled in the third class instead thereby pocketing the difference amount. This act is punishable by the law. Please suggest how do I confront him and what action should be taken by me.

    Hello,

    There are many people like him around us. Beinga senior Bank official he should have followed the normal
    proceedure and travelled by First Class air but he did not do that. It is a senious breach of trust and he should
    be punished.

    You should write to the higher authorities about it along with the passenger list of that Airline which was used
    by the senior official. From the list you can easily find out the his name from the third class passenger list. It will
    act a genuine proof against him.

    Bye,

    it is not punishable dear but you can ask to provide the journey ticket along with boarding pass and cut the difference of fare because it is the government rule that if fare is lesser than the entitlement then actual fare will be provided.

    some times you can en cash your benefits given by company or an organisation.. its not a crime if the bank is giving first class tickets as travelling allowance which they have to be accounted for.. if the employee is given a specific amount as travelling allowance its common that an employee sees to cut cost to save some money he is saving money not cheating any one .. travelling allowance does not mean that you spend all the money for travelling its common that they cut costs for travelling which is good when the destination is to reach a place where you need to attend meeting he choose to travel in third class he choose to save money its not a fraud thing please don't take this into consideration of unlawful offence.. when you want to ensure that you allot particular rule then there must be law or rule that one should travel by tickets issued by the bank only when this rule is imparted then you can have all this problem sorted.. this case is about human needs and money saving activities done by all human including you.. thank you

    Hi ,

    Yes you are correct it is wrong infact there is many exmaple in the public domain where person doing the similar deeds have been punished . However I will suggest first you ask him to confess his mistake and submit the remaining money and promise to the bank that he will not repeat the same action again in future .

    Friend in Bank there is auditing system if there is discrepency then the authority will be liable so as an efficient Branch Manager should ask the senior official to submit bill correctly with voucher.Branch Manager will not go
    to examine whether the concerned employee has taken the source of journey by train/or plane.He will pass the bill as voucher tally.Often it is found higher official can not avail their desired class due to non avaiability of tickets so that they use 3rd class or First whatever is viable at that, there is no question of pocketting because
    he/she has to submit voucher whay he/she expenced accordingly he/she will be paid to avoid future problem.
    In bank never ask you why you have avail bus instead of Taxi.Because at that time taxi was not avaiable so that
    I am to share Bus.In case of award class in bank there is limitation you may expence more but you will get according to limit.If I get 2nd class train then I can use air but you never get more beyond limitation.Similarly
    if a high official deserve Air fare but used 1st class train he will be paid according to his/her expense not more.Voucher amount must be tallied.ok

    Thank You,
