Hi Shubha,

I need one more clarifiation for income tax calculation what will be the maximium amount we can exempted. For Example:

1. Once income is 450000/- p.a
then he will be generally exempted to Re. 1lkh
Then If he shows document under Sec 80 to rs. 1.10 lkh
Then if he show under sec 80 C to rs. 1 lkh
Therefore his exemption is 3.10 lk, the remaining 1.40, as he eligible to pay the tax?

Can give your contact number or mail ID to contact u further.

Thanks & regards,
Ramya Shankar
