Reimbursement of travel expenses incurred while on duty

I incurred certain expenses while travelling for duty related to my job. My employer reimbursed these expenses. Under what section should I state this amount to claim exemption.

NOTE: The amount is NOT a travel allowance which would fall under section 10(14)(i).

Reimbursement of expenses is not considered as income and hence not subject to tax

Thank you sir! Under what section should I show it in the online ITR-1?

Thanks again! So you mean that the reimbursed amount need not be mentioned in the ITR-1? The reimbursed amount was credited to me via my salary bank account. Can this lead to any query from the income tax department in the future?

Is it ltc or medical expenses?

It is neither LTC nor medical expense. It is the amount spent on flight and hotel during the official travel.

No It's not taxable and you don't show anywhere. Because your company has claim expenses in their books of account and they also not shown that amount in your Form 16A.
