So after three joining letters and two locations, I hope this one is final. Yes, you heard it right! TCS has sent me joining letter three times by now, the first one describing my ILP location at Hyderabad and date as 26th December, the second one re-describing it and the third one changing the ILP location to Kolkata, the date being the same, in an attempt to make my ILP location same as my base branch. Now I have little idea on what they meant by base branch, if you say they recruited me from Kolkata, so that’s why my base branch is Kolkata, then there are a lot of other candidates to who has got recruited from Kolkata but are sent to Trivandram, and others to Hyderabad or Chennai or to Ahmedabad. Yes, I gave my first preference as Kolkata but then so did most of the other candidates too, who were sent to Trivandram.
Anyway so I have now 95 days left till I join and I am left
with a bunch of formalities, mostly paper works before I
begin. They will not provide me accommodation as my ILP center was same as my base branch(again!) and hopefully the Housing Rental Allowance(HRA) will not be deducted from my pay (previously when my ILP location was at Hyderabad, I was told I would be given accommodation and the same would be deducted from my pay).
There is more to come on my ILP. To get updates, follow this blog or subscribe by email. And don’t forget to leave your comments below this post.
