Dear Sonali ji,
I appreciate your response. But the information given by you is as applicable in Maharashtra under the Maharashtra State Tax on Professions, Trades, Callings and Employments Act, 1975.
Professional Tax is a State Law. Kerala State has its' own Law. You need to find out the provisions under the Kerala Law.
To my Knowledge, in Kerala ex-serviceman is exempted from this Tax. There is a notification which I could not find out. MLAs are exempted from paying this Tax in Kerala.
