You can become a solution architect and transform businesses to use cloud from traditional hardware. Hire certified professionals for staffing. I think its called migration consultancy.

I decided to freelance for them as I can use the extra. How much does a campaign/event marketing manager charge per hr. as a freelancer? What is the norm for setting rates?

Hey everyone !

Need help to understand this.

Basic: 10,00,000
HRA: 6,00,000

HRA excemption Calc:
1. Provided by Company: 6,00,000
2. 40% of Basic: 4,00,000
3. Rent - 10% of Basic: Rent- 1,00,000

For tax exception, min of these will be considered.

Ques: Can I claim my entire HRA exemption of 4,00,000 (as per option 2) by showing annual rent of 5,00,000 ?
P.S.- I am staying at home with my parents and I can transfer the rent to my parents.

Thanks in advance.

Also once it is converted can I contribute to that same account in future years?
