Rent receipts is enough with landlord details PAN required as per the following circular
As per the new circular issued by the Income Tax department, employees claiming HRA exemption by producing the rent receipt, will have to mandatorily quote the PAN of landlord/s to the employer where the rent paid exceeds Rs.1,80,000/-per annum. In case the landlord/s does not have a PAN, the employees’ need to collect a declaration duly signed in the format from the landlord and submit to the employer. This declaration form needs to specify clearly, the name and address of the landlord/s. In the absence of any of the above, no HRA exemption will be extended to the employee.
thanks,for guiding me,but sir i have another doubt about rent agreement that if rent agreement does not produce by employees,then hra deduction will be allowed.because in my organisation many employees produces before me fake rent receipt, they paste revenue stamp on rent receipt.

Act is telling only proofs for the rent.bur agreement is the one time document there we cannot conclude whether rent really paid or not, but some of the employer insisting for both agreement and rent receipts.
Employer has to receive and verify this documents, in case found fake the same can be rejected by employer. but while employee declaring that is correct means final responsibility pass on employee`s hand. Employer no need to bother about that.
