Hi, My father is a senior citizen, and currently fully bedridden(100%). As he has zero movement of his body. Currently i am fully looking after him and bearing all his Medical expenses. Apart from his medicines, i also need to procure his Urine kit,and other Sanitory requirements which are available only from a Chemist shop.All these purchases are documented in the form of Medical Bills. Can i claim Tax exemption under 80DD.

You can avail deduction of 50,000 for maintenance of a disabled dependent. If the disability is severe, the deduction amount will be 100,000.

You need to get disability certificate from local government hospital.
