Per Diem Tax


I had a query on the taxability of per diems in India. I have read one question on your website regarding this but it dates to sometime in 2011.

However, I believe there have been multiple court rulings on this topic and hence would like to know what is the present rule on the taxability of per diems?

I am told by my employer that any all such per diems will now have to be supported by bills/invoices after the completion of the travel and any unspent money will now be taxed at the hands of the employee under the applicable tax rate.

Please clarify.

Thank you. Mahesh
