Urgent revision of Medical Reimbursement limit

This petition had 107 supporters

Under the head of Medical Reimbursements, the maximum tax benefit available is Rs. 15,000 per annum. Under this head, one may avail for reduction in the taxable income for a maximum of or up to Rs. 15,000 for medical expenses during each financial year. Reimbursement by an employer of medical expenses incurred by an employee is generally tax-free.

This limit has been set in 1997 conitinues to be the same needs urgent upward revision considering the medical costs that have gone sky high. This limit of Rs. 15000/- is too meagre to support the medical expense of an individual and his/her dependents. Further insurance providers generally do not support OPD expenses.

Through this petition, I request the Finance Minister to consider this revision at the earliest possible opportunity. Please join me in supporting this cause.
