    Children Education Allowance is different than the scholarship.  children Education Allowance is exempt from tax up to Rs. 100 per month per child for maximum of two children. Exemption cannot exceed to INR 1200 per year per child for two children. Scholarship is given for further education of employee and not for employee’s children. Hence, CEA cannot be claimed as exemption u/s 10(16).
