ITR 2 online form for AY 2023-24 has a system error in respect of deduction permitted u/s 80G (donations). The maximum permissible deduction u/s 80G (donations eligible for 50% deduction subject to limits) is 10%. However, the system calculates and permits the eligible deduction as 5% (maximum) of the Adjusted Gross Total Income, instead of 10% (maximum) of the AGTI. Has anyone else come across this error? Or, has the maximum deduction permitted has been reduced to 5% of the AGTI?
