Hi fellow IBMers,

Need some info on the allocation of Flexible Benefit Plans and NPS.

A. Do we get to allocate the FBB to the following heads:
1. Food Card/Meal Coupons?
2. Mobile Reimbursement ?

B. What are the eligible banks that IBM agrees to transfer the Employer's share for NPS ( 80CCD2 ) ?

This is for IBM 1:
1. Sodexo Meal Cards are available and you can have 2 choices: Rs 1100 / 2200 plan. It shall be delivered to your desired office location.

2. NPS , if you already hold the PRAN, you would get in touch with HDFC POP for transferring or mapping your PRAN. Post that, you need to add you PRAN in Workday!

For more details on these benefits search for NPS in AskHR ( search AskHR in w3 )


No mobile reimbursement, though

Hi sharks 🦈🦈 I recently switched from PwC India to IBM & hence need to transfer my PF to IBM.

Can anyone tell me who is to transfer the PF when someone is switching from PwC India?

At first the PwC India finance team told me that it needs to be approved by RPFC(Government).

Then when I said that in EPFO portal, it shows- 'Pending at previous employer', then they said fine we will approve it & they approved.

Can anyone tell me the actual process who had to get this transfer done ??

Hello my sharks 🦈 from IBM 😇
I have a query with regards to HRA deduction that we can claim as non taxable.

So in my offer letter, it is written that max 50% of basic salary can be used for house rent.

My basic salary is 7,00,000. So how much deduction can I show for HRA, considering the The Income Tax Act Section 10-13A?

I want to reduce the tax as much as possible through HRA, but I believe there is a limit upto which deductions will be considered.

Thanks in advance guys🙂
