You can pay any amount as food allowance. However any amounts paid over and above Rs 50 per day is taxable. Radha
If you give food allowance in form of cash, then the entire amount is taxable. But if you provide the food in form of coupons, then the maximum can be 2200/- per month.
The logic of 2200/- food coupon is simple.
As per the act you can give coupon of Rs. 50 per meal. The employer can say that we are providing two meal in a day which makes it to 100/- per day. Therefore, 2200/- food coupon is also tax free.

Dear Amit, As per shift working hour of 8 hr per day, can we say we provide 02 meal for employee in a day and claim tax free for Rs. 2200/- as food coupon. Regards, Prabin
hi,
i have a query-
our organisation doesnt provide any food coupons but still can we claim it saying that we give coupons. do employees/ employer need to furnish hard copy of food coupons to claim tax rebate?

Hi Guys, Earlier it was 2200/- but now food coupons above 1250/- is taxable. Please check it and make sure. Regards, Rajesh Auchare
Hi friend,
Yes, if you have not provided the food coupons, it is like cash disbursement in replacement of food coupons, hence it is taxable. you cannot claim rebate. If you are providing the same, you can claim rebate.
