    I understand from recent CBDT circular that PAN number of landlord to be furnished in case rent paid per month exceeds INR8,333. I pay monthly amount of INR13,000. However I pay INR7,000 towards first floor to one landlord and INR6,000 towards ground floor (my parents stay in Ground floor) to another landlord.

    Am I eligible to show rent paid towards my parents house in HRA?

    Do I need to quote PAN number of landlord in this situation?

    The Law says that if the Annual Rent paid is more than Rs. 1 Lakh, it is mandatory for the employee the PAN No. of the Landlord

    Therefore, if you are claiming HRA Exemption of the Rent paid for Ground Floor, you would be required to intimate the PAN Card, as the Total Annual Rent paid would be more than Rs. 1 Lakh p.a.

    If you are not claiming HRA Exemption of Rent Paid for Ground Floor, you wouldn't be required to intimate the PAN Card because total annual rent paid would be less than Rs. 1 Lakh

    Dear Sir

    1. Yes, you can claim HRA exemption of Rs. 13000
    2. You will have to intimate the PAN No. as total rent paid by you is more than Rs. 1 Lakh. Irrespective of the no. of landlords, if rent paid is more than Rs 1 Lakh, you'll have to disclose the PAN No
