    Hi,

    I am a government servant working in an R&D organization. I get a professional update allowance.
    The allowance is usually exempt from tax and hence not included under income for TDS purposes. However, if the utilization certificate is not produced in time, it is included as income for TDS by the employer. Can I claim exemption while filing ITR under section 10 and claim a tax refund ?

    Yes, you can claim the deduction while filing the income tax return and claim income tax refund

    Thank you. So 'update allowance' is in the category of self deductible items like HRA, Housing loan interest.
