Tax on leave encasement in death case of govt. employer

My father died in Dec 2010 with 29 year 6 month of job from U.P. power corporation Ltd. his actual salary was 51900(basic+grade pay)+ DA as applicable at that time. leave encasement made was 707538 but they have deducted 83953 as tax on it. but I found that in death case the leave encasement given to legal heir is fully exempted from tax. plz tell me some way to get refund on this as this case is getting older and older thanks...

Exemption on leave encashment would only be limited to 3 lakhs, in case of non-government employees.

So, they have deducted 20.6% TDS on remaining 4,075,38. While filing income tax return on his behalf, you can claim refund in case final tax computed (including his other income in the year) comes less than it.
