Thanks Rajneesh for pointing that out.
There was a small mistake in the file, DA was not included in calculations. It has been corrected now. You may download latest income tax calculator now.

Income tax exemption for HRA will be least of following:
a) The actual amount of HRA received as a part of CTC
b) 40%(if living in non-metro area) or 50% (if living in metro area) of basic salary
c) Rent paid minus 10% of salary (Basic + Dearness Allowance)
