I’ve resigned from a Shitty company MasterCom technology in Bangalore. The notice period is 3 months and the company has put my salary on hold for all 3 months. Is it legal ? Can I get it reduce in any way.@mastercom

It is perfectly legal. You can read exit policy document of the company to confirm the notice period payout.

There is no such exit policy document here they have just mailed me saying the salary will be on hold

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🙂

For the junior associates out there, I’m a 2020 call and am convinced that I’m taking a lot of time while working on deals. I’m also not really sure how my efficiency compares to other associates as I’m the only junior in the group. The junior partner I work with primarily always tells me to rack up my hours but I’m also afraid of looking inefficient with the more senior partners. Does anyone ever write down their own time? Or is ashamed of how long it takes to draft say a direction to pay?

Hi fishes, I am switching my company A only after 6 months of staying here and did not get my PF transferred into my current active PF account. When I switch to my new company B will I be able to transfer the amount from my current employee A plus the past amounts? Or do I need to withdraw?

If I withdraw then do I have to withdraw for the entire total amount or can I withdraw only the amount getting accumulated in company A?
