The assessee is widow and receiving pension from BSF which is being shown as exempted in ITR under "Family pension received by family members of armed forces including para military forces [Section 10(19)]".. This year there was reimbursement of children school fee of Rs. 26000 per child for 2 child for 2 yrs. Originally the assessee claimed exemption in those years u/s 80C out of her other income. Whether the amount received this year is tax-free or not as per BSF guidelines. Pl. suggest.
