LTA Claim query


Me & My husband both are working in the same company. We both have not claimed LTA last year so we both want to claim this financial year. But my company fellow told me, only one can claim LTA if husband and wife both are working in the same company.

They are not able to show such clauses and we are also not able to find such clauses. But they are not accepting our declaration for LTA.

I understand this is not claiming same exemption twice so we both can claim. I will take my parents on vacation and my husband will take his parents and we 6 will go at same place for a vacation at same time. Please tell me whether it is possible or not? and let me know any such clauses are there?

If your's and spouse's travel declaration does not have any person common travelling on trip, you both can claim LTA exemption independently. As exemption won't be claimed twice for the same person.

Even if you travel to same location and on same dates, exemption should still be valid, as long as people travelling are different.

There is no as such rule, which prevents husband wife to claim LTA deduction simultaneously in a year.
