Deduction for rent paid u/s 10

I pay house rent at two places - Mohali and Gurgaon. My family stays in Mohali on rent. I have temporarily taken an assignment in Gurgaon, therefore I pay rent for the PG. Can both these amounts be taken for claiming deduction u/s 10?

You cannot claim HRA exemption for two houses. Deduction will only be provided for house in same city where you work.

What if I am paying rent for 2 houses & travel to work from either of the places? I do not own any house property

@Gary You can show maximum one house on rent and claim HRA for single house.
