1st step is how they designed your salary.
HRA - is highly tax saving component in salary strucher.
Conveyence- 800
Medical - 1250
Sodexho - 2200
Telephone - 1500
Car , Meal Coupons, LTA, Uniform aloowances, CEA ( these are the salary components and you can save income tax on these)
80(C) upto 1 lac tax is exempted ( policies,PF,PPF,fixed deposit, tution fees,home loan principle, NSC, shares)
80E- education loan interest, total interest exempted.
