Is *Mandatory* to submit "Rental agreement" in addition to "Rent Receipt" to claim HRA for salaried emp? I am claiming HRA for Rs. 8300.

Rent receipt is all what the employer would need, unless they raise any suspicion and need to clarify. What exactly have you been informed ? Looking forward to hear from you

Do we have any clarity from Income Tax of India on "Rental Agreement" required to claim HRA?
And separate from HRA, do we have any clarity from Income Tax of India on "Rental Agreement" required to claim 'Loss of income for letout property"?
My organization is asking in both the cases. I need clarify from Income Tax of India or CBDT.

No such clarification from Income-tax Department. Only Rent receipt is required for claiming HRA.
For let out properties also generally the Income-tax Department does not ask for Agreements. Only in case of scrutiny matters they ask for agreement or Confirmation from the Tenant.
The Department has not prescribed anything specific about Rent Agreement for determining Income from House Property.
The information required for the purpose is Rent actually Receivable for the year, Municipal Value, Standard Rent as may have been determined by the Rent Control Authorities and Fair Rent the property would fetch.
