I have availed this stay. Only 2 meals allowed and any other can't be reimbursed.


Not even laundry?

3rd meal as well as laundry will also get reimbursed. For brokerage you need PAN of broker as well as receipts.


Laundry is definitely included, all meals are included upon furnishing the bills. Breakfast and dinner is already included with the stay, so dont eat those meals outside. Lunch either order from Hotel or wherever and furnish the bills.


Wow, 2 completely different answers within a minute. This increased my confusion


Everything can be reimbursed if you have proper bills, in my case I had my 3rd meal from swiggy/ Zomato upon producing the bills they have reimbursed it

And yes, you need the actual receipt with broker PAN to get brokerage reimbursed, which is a maximum of 1 month's rent. Hyderabad didn't even have the concept of brokers. It's a fairly new concept. If you do go with brokers, they will be happy if you give half month's rent as commission. That's what I did in 2019, then moved to my home town in 2021 and just now, when i moved back, i just managed to find an apartment without a broker through a lead shared by a colleague in our team's whatsapp group.

3rd meal was not reimbursed for me

Did you order food from swiggy/zomato?

Can we also take one dependant person with us and all the expenses for us both be reimbursed.

Varies for different bands, at band 5 when I joined My parents and wife also accompanied me. I think for bands 6 and 7, only the employee and spouse or either just the employee can be accomodated.

Is the 14 day accommodation fixed or can it be increased under certain circumstances?

It's fixed unless you have an approval from your manager or line function

It’s been 2 years I am working with Novartis . I availed my relocation benefit recently- it means I can not leave the company for another 1 year ?

You can! After paying the relocation expenses back to Novartis!


It can be reimbursed post you submit on final bills

Anyone else here really struggling with your spouse/family during WFH? I am in family law and our clients have been crazier than normal during COVID. That said, I know we are all stressed, but I feel like I am arguing with my spouse more and it is over dumb stuff that really shouldn’t be at issue. I sometimes feel like he wants to push my buttons. Being cooped up all the time certainly isn’t helpful for any of us, so basically i’m just seeing if anyone else is in this same boat and can relate.
