Dear All,
I would like to ask about whether Medical Allowance is exempt from Income Tax or Not. To my knowledge Medical allowance is exempt from Income Tax. For Example, an employee's salary is 100,000/-. His Salary breakup is as. Basic Salary 50,000/-, Conveyance Allowance 5,000/-, HRA 35,000/-, Medical Allowance 10,000/-.
Salary yearly: 1,200,000
Adjustment: 600,000
Yearly Tax: 15,000
Monthly Tax: 1250
As per above mentioned tax calculation Medical Allowance is not excluded during tax. Is this working right or not? Please guide.
Thanking you

As per an amendment in the Indian Budget 2018, tax exemption on medical reimbursement amounting to Rs 15,000 and transport allowance amounting to Rs 19,200 in a financial year have been replaced with a standard deduction of Rs 40,000. This amendment became applicable from FY 2018-19 (i.e. starting 1st April 2018). From FY 2019-20 onwards, the standard deduction has been raised to Rs 50,000. (Amended in Budget 2019) .
