  1. Hi Sir,

    I want to thank you for such a fabulous peace of work, it was very simple to understand.

    Thanks & regards

  2. hallo sir,
    thanks for the sincere effort in making this calculator and sharing with us.

    I am with ISRO Trivandrum and we found it really gud. But the version I downloaded was showing surcharge for income above 10 lakhs for the current FY also, whereas the surcharge is not applicable from current year. Please check this if u haven't noted it so far.

    Please let me know one more thing. If the employer is not ready to give the relief even after requisition and submission of Form 10E, through TDS what can we do for claiming the relief.

    Thanks in advance
    Anzar, ISRO

  4. Dear Jai they cannot get the relief on 40% SPC arrears which they have received last year. They can get relief on 40% by filing the Revised Income Tax Return.

  5. Dear Sir,

    but i have a problem.
    In assessment year 2008-2009,my income tax was,i didn't include tution fee of my daughter for deduction under section 80E.
    Can I include this amount for the purpose of tax saving now,when I want to revise my return for relief under section 891 because including arrear of S.P.C my taxable income of that year has increased ?
    An early shall be highly appreciated.
    thanking You,

  7. You can revise your return of income for the Assessment Year 2008-09 claiming the deduction u/s 80E.
    The same reduced total income for the A.Y. 2008-09 can be included in calculating relief u/s 89(1) in this Fin. Year 2009-10.

  8. Thanks a lot for helping me !!!

  9. In assessment year 2007-08& 2008-2009,my income tax was,i didn't show my savings U/S 80C for these years.
    But when 6pay commission came in my salary for those years bacame taxable
    Can I show my savings now while claiming for relief U/S 89(1) on my arrears of salary, all of which I am getting in this financial year 2009-10? If so Under which rule and to whom shall I represent for the relief - my DDO or income tax authorities

  10. First Qn. is whether have you filed Return of Income with IT Dept. for AY 07-08 &08-09. If Yes, you can file Return Return of income claiming the enhanced 80C deductions. If no, first you have file the return even though it is timebarred and belated claim 80C saving in full. The copy of IT return may be produced to your DDO and in 89(1) relief calculation take the income as per your return of income filed. Produce the form -10E to your DDO for claiming relief u/s 89(1)

  11. if relief u/s 89 total A is less than total B then what will be the relief

  12. in relief u/s 89, we are using receipt basis or accural basis
