i saw your questio- yes the employee will get deduction of 9600 but since the amount received is rs.4000
the deduction will be oly rs 4000
thus no tax will be paid on transport allowance.

The deduction is for Rs 800/- p.m. or actual received. In this case dedyuction can not be more than Rs 4000/-

Dear Naval,

Transport allowance under rule 2BB is limited to Rs. 1600/- on monthly basis and hence balance Rs. 200/- monthly (Rs. 1800 - Rs. 1600) will be taxable

Sir, (This is not a reply but a query, please)

The exemption for transport allowance in the IT is Rs. 1600/- p.m. for handicapped and Rs. 800/- p.m. for others.  Now my questions are :

(a)  If a person has been getting Rs. 100/- p.m. for say 6 months and gets Rs. 1600+256 for the remaining 6 months, can he claim claim exemption of Tpt allc for

   (i)   Rs. 9600/- (800x12)   or   (ii)  Rs. 600 (6x100)+Rs. 800x6 = Rs. 5400/- or

(iii)  6x100+6x1600   or

(iv) (since the exemption mentioned above is for old rates before introduction of CCS (Revised) Pay Rules, 2008.) is it Rs. 1600x12


(b) Is the DA now given on Tpt is exempt like Transport Allowance ?
