This is cool very helpful.

Good Job :)

It seems that the calculation is wrong for Figure #2 Actual house rent paid by you less 10% of your basic salary; here 10% has been reduced for only one month; not for 12 months i.e. it should be (10% per month) *12.

Hi, could you please let me know how HRA is to be calculated – My basic pay (consolidated pay) is 48000, the employer do not give any HRA neither do they deduct any TDS. I have paid advance tax but I have no idea how to calculate HRA.

Thanks in advance.

I went through your HRA calculator- but because my employer does not give me a HRA- the calculator shows HRA as Zero.
