Even I have the same query.. Last year I've filed return for my brother there was no HRA in Form 16 but there was HRA shown in salary slip.. So I did the calculations for exemption of HRA and claimed the deduction. The return was processed with no defects.. Still I wanna know if it's correct to claim the deduction or not. I believe it is correct because I'm not claiming any false deduction.

Yes while calculating your tax liability while filing the return you can consider it and claim exemption. if any refund is there you can claim it from dept after filing the return.

The first question here is, do you get HRA as part of your package? If yes then it should be mentioned in salary slip or form 16.
Secondly the income tax department does reconciliation between deductions shown in Form 16 and return filled. So if you have any proof of HRA being a component of your salary it can be claimed in the return. Otherwise you might get a notice and the burden of proof that you have claimed the HRA deduction rightly will fall on you.
