Here are the full expenses for the Facilitator Workshop in Mumbai on Nov 27-28, 2015

Dr. Sachin Flight:
In-bound on Jet Airways (DED-DEL-BOM): INR 540 +13,500 Miles from Dhruv (this is a donation)  

Out-bound on Spice Jet (BOM-DEL-DED): INR 5,970

Cancellation charge of flight as name was spelled wrong:
Used Sachin Srivastava instead of Satyendra Srivastava. The total trip amount was Rs. 11,487, and Rs. 8,287 should be refunded as the cancellation policy is Rs. 1800 cancellation charge per way (total Rs. 3200). I have contacted Clear Trip for this refund and am waiting to hear back from them. I will update here once I hear back. For now, I am not claiming a refund for this.

Dr. Sachin Accommodation:
INR 4796 at OYO Rooms in Powai for four nights, Thursday Nov 26 – Monday Nov 30.

Chai Break (4 times): Rs. 8 (cost per chai) x 20 (number of participants) x 4 = 640. Dhruv paid 340 and Kamal paid 300.

Hence, amount to be refunded to Dhruv: INR 540 (Jet Airways) + INR 5970 (Spice Jet) + INR 4796 (OYO Rooms) + INR 340 (Chai) = INR 11,646

Dr. Sachin paid for his transportation back to the airport, INR 500. He is covering that himself, treated as a donation to TISA. Thank you!

Kamal Yadav will be refunded INR 300. Dhruv will refund this amount to Kamal.

Also, BIG THANK YOU to Kamal for organizing venue in IIT Bombay completely free of charge!
