18 October 2011 Exemption-There are certain incomes which are not chargeable to tax i.e. they are exempted from tax.For eg Interest on PPF is an exempted income.We are not required to pay tax on it.

Deduction-From GTI we can claim deduction under various section like 80C,80D etc.We can claim deduction under these sections subject to fulfillment of certain conditions and limits.So we have to pay tax on (GTI-Deduction allowed).

18 October 2011 Well explained...

In simple

Exemption >>>> No tax liability

Deduction >>>> reduce the tax liability/nil liability..
