However this Department has been receiving various queries regarding CEA/Hostel Subsidy especially with regard to the applicability of various provision/instructions issued during sixth CPC regime/period.

धारा 80DDB के तहत आयकर में छूट

8:40 pm 0

आयकर अधिनियम की इस धारा के तहत निर्दिष्ट बीमारी के उपचार के लिए किए गए खर्च के लिए धारा 80DDB के तहत कटौती का दावा किया जा सकता है। कटौती की जाने वाली राशि का दावा किया जा सकता है यह उस व्यक्ति की उम्र पर निर्भर करता है जिस पर खर्च किया गया है। कटौती का दावा स्वयं या आश्रित के लिए किया जा सकता है। हालांकि, अगर यह आश्रित के लिए दावा किया जा रहा है, तो व्यक्ति को कटौती का दावा करने वाले व्यक्ति पर पूरी तरह से निर्भर होना चाहिए।

यदि जिस व्यक्ति पर व्यय किया गया है, वह 60 वर्ष से कम आयु का है तो अधिकतम 40,000 रुपये की कटौती का दावा किया जा सकता है। दूसरी ओर, यदि व्यक्ति की आयु 60 वर्ष और उससे अधिक है, तो उस स्थिति में अधिकतम कटौती का दावा किया जा सकता है जो कि 1 लाख रुपये है।

इस कटौती का दावा किया जा सकता है चाहे वह किसी भी स्वास्थ्य बीमा पॉलिसी के तहत कवर किया गया हो या नहीं। हालांकि, याद रखें कि उक्त व्यक्ति के चिकित्सा उपचार के लिए बीमाकर्ता से प्राप्त राशि या नियोक्ता द्वारा प्रतिपूर्ति की गई कटौती की राशि का दावा किया जाएगा।

धारा 80D के तहत आयकर में छूट

8:37 pm 0
कर अधिनियम की धारा 80 डी आपको कर लगाने से पहले आय से कटौती के रूप में किए गए चिकित्सा व्यय का दावा करके कर बचाने की अनुमति देती है। यदि आप इन दो शर्तों से संतुष्ट हैं तो आप इस कटौती का दावा कर सकते हैं:

क) चिकित्सा व्यय स्वयं, पति या पत्नी या आश्रित बच्चों या / और माता-पिता पर खर्च किया जाना चाहिए। इसके अलावा, जिस व्यक्ति के लिए चिकित्सा व्यय किया जाता है, उसकी आयु 60 वर्ष और उससे अधिक होनी चाहिए। इसलिए, ज्यादातर मामलों में लोग केवल स्वयं / पति या माता-पिता के लिए यह दावा करने में सक्षम होंगे क्योंकि आश्रित बच्चे 60+ आयु वर्ग में होने की संभावना कम है।

ख) जिस व्यक्ति पर चिकित्सा व्यय किया गया है, उसे किसी भी स्वास्थ्य बीमा पॉलिसी के तहत कवर नहीं किया जाना चाहिए।

अगर ये दोनों शर्तें पूरी हो जाती हैं, तो एक वित्तीय वर्ष में अधिकतम 50,000 रुपये की कटौती का दावा किया जा सकता है। इस कटौती का दावा करने के लिए, सभी चिकित्सा व्यय को नकद के अलावा किसी अन्य मोड में भुगतान करना होगा। इसका अर्थ है कि चिकित्सा खर्चों के लिए सभी भुगतान बैंकिंग चैनलों जैसे कि क्रेडिट कार्ड, डेबिट कार्ड और नेट-बेकिंग या डिजिटल चैनल जैसे मोबाइल वॉलेट, यूपीआई इत्यादि के माध्यम से किए जाने चाहिए।
