  1. HRA exemption is given to person getting HRA and PAYING rent.You are , as per your question, not paying any rent.

    Therefore, if you try to get the tax benefit on HRA by ARRANGING payment receipts , you will be doing crime of tax evasion. Not only will you be in trouble, your parents may also feel the heat.Which you NEVER want.

    Pay the tax!


  2. You are residing in a foreign country, working for a Chennai based company and want to pay rent for a Kolkata accomodation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    How do you people without brains even get employed?
