Our employer carries forward two components of CTC to next year
1. Medical Reimbursement
This is done for want of bills from employees. If no bills / insufficient bills are submitted by the employee the balance to the credit of the employee at the year end is not paid to the employee but is carried forward to next year. In next year too the employee has to submit such bills for claiming any cumulative balance standing to his credit. In the absence of bills such amounts are accumulated in the name of employee year on year and paid at the time when he leaves his job.
Employer argue that the same cannot be credited to the employee at every financial year end as the employee has not submitted the bills.
My query is
1) Whether it is right to carryforward such amounts to next year.
2) Why cant an employee get his sum due to him at year end after deducting requisite taxes.
