Hi Vijeth

In case you are not salaried employee (have not put any figures in basic salary), then standard deduction won't apply.

Dear Pankaj, I am a salaried employee and mentioned the Medical reimbursement and Conveyance in the column mentioned in the Excel sheet but the standard deduction is not reflected.

Please confirm which sheet you are using. Provide the excel file name.
