NO HRA component in my payslip, how do i claim deduction under 80GG?

I don’t have HRA component in my payslip, so i was unable to claim HRA exemption in my firm. I read that, i can claim Rs.60000/- under section 80GG. Is it true? What proofs should i submit? What are the conditions?Any guidance would be appreciated.

    It is correct that you cannot claim HRA exemption in case of the absence of this component in your payslip.

    You can claim 80GG to the extent of INR 60000, proofs required is rent receipts.

    1. Deduction under section 80GG is available only for individual/HUF
    2. He should be self employed or salaried
    3. He should not own any accomodation at the place where he is employed or carries on his own business.
    4. If he owns property at some other place then he should not claim the same as self occupied.
    5. He would be required to furnish a declaration in Form 10BA.
