How to claim rebate u/s 80DDB while filling IT returns in India?

I want to claim rebate u/s 80DDB while filling my IT returns(Chronic renal failure for my father) in India. I have my form 16 and form 10-I approved by the medical board. Please let me know: 1. How to claim the rebate while filling returns. Should I enter in the ITR1 the amount that is mentioned in the Form 16 or the recalculated one after deduction of the claim? 2. Can I do it via efilling or it can be done only manually? 3. Do I need to attach the certificate (original/copy?) along with the ITR1/acknowledgement for verfication? 4. What other documents are required? Kindly provide info in this regard. Thanks

You will have to enter salary amount same as mentioned in your form-16. To claim deduction under 80DDB, you will have to provide amount in column 5g in ITR1.

It can be done via online filing as well.

There is no document needs to be attached with ITR. In case IT department needs proof, they will raise demand for it later.
