First I Thank all. All the above points are clear to me except HRA.
Am not much aware of HRA rebate and all, Please clarify :
1. All employees will eligible for HRA rebate? Because all are having HRA 20%
2. What is the HRA process , I thought its simply an CTC component. How It reflects on Budget and all.

The answer to your Point 1 is NO.
Such Individual can claim exemption of Rent paid under section 80GG.
Currently the max limit of 80GG is Rs.24,000/- annually. The budget proposes to raise this limit to Rs. 60,000/- annually.
The individual can claim deduction of Rent Paid by filling Form 10BA.

All proposals in the budget will be applicable only from 01 April 2016 after the budget gets passed in the Parliament.
So one has to wait till PF office get new forms etc.burt taxation provision of EPF.
