Are students who have commutation pass eligible to commuting allowance payment?

Actually, if the nearest station of your working place is located along the same railway line of your school, commuting allowance may not be paid.

Student commutation pass is issued for commuting to school, not for going to work. Therefore, commuting allowance should be paid whatever the situation is.

However, there are so many companies and stores which misunderstand the correct definition and overlook the right of employees. In order to make things clear, ask conditions of employment including commuting allowance payment.
