I am getting Rs. 10000.00 p.m. as a Special Allowance towards cost to be incurred to meet the expenditure on office duty or Market sales works etc. I want know whether the said allowance is expempt up to the bills of petrol Cash Memos and Local Taxi Hire charges which i submit to the Company or Not.

If the above Rs.10000/- received as special allowance is as a part of salary then it is taxable. However it has been received like as travelling allowance then only the portion which has unspent should be taxable. If as per rule of your company you received a per day allowqance for travelling outside the office and you claim as spent the all amount then it is not taxable. It will be taxable only if you say's that there has been some saving from such.
