Dilnaz UnnisaHi Unnati
I am just adding some more points to what Rinky has posted.
An employee will continue to get his / her full Indian Salary. This will be credited to his/her bank account in India.
Foreign Exchange availed by the employee will have to be accounted and excess returned to the Finance Department within five days of return from on site travel. Failure to do so may result in recovery of unsettled amounts from the employee's salary/other dues.
The per diem rates are US$50 per day
This is calculated from the date of reaching the destination and the date of leaving from there. Per Diem covers food, local travel, laundry, personal telephone, airport tax and other incidental expenses.
If any leave is availed during this period of travel, those days will not be accounted for the per diem allowance and lodging expenses.
In the case of airport transfer, the related travel charges will be reimbursed at actuals.
Accommodation cost will be based on actuals and the employee will have to produce bills. Based on the place, the maximum limit will be set by the HR department in the range of US$30 -to a maximum of US$75 per day.
Visa Validity / Extension:
The employee must return to India before his/her visa and period of stay expires . He /she must ensure that the employee's passport is stamped with a proper validity date upon arrival in the destination. Any variation in this must be brought to the notice of the concerned Director, since an extension will need to be applied before the date of expiration.
All employees on overseas travel are covered under the overseas Medical Insurance for the period of their stay. If their stay gets extended they should intimate the HR department/Travel Desk in India to have their medical insurance extended for that period.
Use of Customer Facilities:
It is possible that the client with whom the employee is allocated would have provisions for Internet / telephones /Fax etc. facilities. One has to be extremely judicious and careful in utilizing these facilities and under no circumstances should they be misused. The employee should be aware that clients routinely check on the usage of these facilities. Any misuse of the facilities would mean instant recall to India, and the employee would face severe disciplinary action.
