Exempt income > 5000

In the latest IT amendment it has been said that if you have exempt income > 5000 then you need to submit ITR2 instead of ITR1.

Now what all are the incomes that falls under the category of exempted income for a salaried person (except dividend)

Please advice.

But those are not exempted income under the head salaries. I want to know what will be the exempt incomes for a salaried person?

EPF, Gratuity and Leave encashment are applicable for salaried person. Children education allowance, Conveyance allowance, House rent allowance, Leave travel allowance, uniform allowance, and perquisites can be other such exempted income.
