Professional Development Allowance - taxable or not?

Can you please tell me if the component - Professional Development Allowance is taxable or not? If non-taxable, then please also advise if we need to produce receipts/bills. I see that you have explained about all the allowances except this one in your portal. What kind of expenses would apply for this exemption. A couple of examples would be helpful for us. Thank you.

If original bills are submitted to employer, this allowance may become non-taxable. Generally payment done towards any technical course fee, certification etc done to enhance professional knowledge can be reimbursed.
