No, TaxSaver Tickets cannot be transferred to another person, as they can only be used by the individual who received the tax benefit.

It depends on the arrangement reached with the employer - an employee may keep the ticket or may be required to return it.

Monthly tickets are valid for one calendar month, while annual tickets are valid for one year commencing from the first day of any month.
