Hello fishes,
I am new under tax slab. I have a query.
I will be permanently working from home but my base location is Bangalore. I am at my home in another city, so is it possible that I claim HRA with the city I'm residing in?
If yes then how?
Any help will be really appreciated. TIA

Yes, you can claim HRA for tav benefit. To add you can pay rent to your parents and you can calim that too. If the annual rent is less that INR 1 lakh than no pan card details more than that you need PAN number to claim. Hope this is helpful.

How do you guys(those staying with parents at home) claim HRA for tax saving?

I joined Deloitte there, it's not allowed to put "relative" as your landlord and claim HRA even though you make rent agreement.

So I guess, my amount around ~1,80,000Rs of HRA won't be calculated automatically and TDS will happen.

I can, I believe, claim this while filing my IT Returns next year.

So question here is - what all evidence do I need to collate?

Receipts;? even Agreement is needed? What else?
