What is the HRA policy in Accenture? I got to know that i can't claim HRa if my base location is city A and living in a rental accommodation in City B?
Is that true?

HRA policies are not for your company but according to Income Tax.

You may Claim HRA in your case however speak to a CA and plan your taxes and financial year in order to avoid heavy taxes.

I've 6.5 yrs of experience in automation testing & agile methodology. Currently in CL9.

Hi All,

My joining is on 14 feb and just now I have received my revised offer letter from accenture which i didn't asked for.

They have increased my Ctc by 50% more than previous offer letter.

Is something fishy in this as I have uploaded my documents already on the basis on previous OL.

Thanks in advance.
