Hi friends,


i am getting 1000 rs. per month as meal allowance.

which is part of CTC.

we are receiving this meal allowance in the form of Sodexho vouchers.

my question is that-


as we are paying for it and it is not freely provided by the employer.

what will the tax treatment??


or any other suggestion or treatment from your side
