HRA Exemption During Covid Time


How much HRA exemption can be claimed, if we stay in a rented house for only part of the year(covid scenario)?

Please advise.


No exemption and there is no official statement regarding the same.


Hi @Sandeep_G

Only for covid there’s no such schemes, but in general you can claim HRA if you’re in a rented house or as per the conditions laid for HRA to claim.

There is an option to choose the period while claiming HRA, so you can opt for 3 month or 6 months showing the valid proof.

But only for Covid there is no separate law as @Bharath mentioned.

HRA rules: House Rent Allowance: Through a magnifying glass
