Whatever amount you add to Sodexo won’t come in your pay check and won’t be taken for tax calculation.


Under rule 3(7)(iii) of I-T Rules- (Tax Free)

Free food and non-alcoholic beverages provided to employees during working hours at the office premises or through 'paid vouchers', which are 'not transferable' and 'usable only at eating joints', to the extent the value thereof in either case does not exceed Rs. 50/- per meal or

Tea or snacks provided during working hours or

Free food and non-alcoholic beverages during working hours provided in a remote area or an off-shore installation.

If 2 meals are provided by an employer (i.e. Breakfast and Lunch or Lunch and dinner) a day, so the tax-free perquisite would be as follows-

2 times * Rs. 50 per meal = 100 / day * 22 days (if working days) = Rs. 2,200 per month

Money in Sodexo is not in paycheck hence tax free upto a limit ( you can't add your whole salary there to save tax).

Sodexo can be used in office canteen, many retail stores, swiggy , Zomato etc

Attention to all the fishes who are holding a joining letter from this lier company ITC Infotech
If you guys have any any other option please take the other option. If not look for opportunities in other company. This company is full of fake promises and lies in terms of annual appraisals. And more fun thing is they are doing it publicly. They will use your talent and hard work to fill company pocket and you will get nothing in return. Shame on the worthless management. Bann it..
