Increase of Medical reimbursement tax rebate limit ( Present Rs 15000 )

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


I am an employee working in private limited company . Consistently paying a tax more than 3 lakhs per annum.

Every year i am getting one month basic i.e appx Rs 50000 as medical reimbursement  in my salary package . That has to be claimed with with actual spent medical bills for self and dependents.

I live with my  wife , two major kids and parents.

I am 54 , my wife 49 and parents above 75 years both are diabetic , insulin base , they need min Rs 7000/ month medicines.

In general  i am spending more than 1 lakh for year for self , my wife  and   my senior citizen parents.

 My concern is ,even though i get a reasonable of Rs 50000 in my package , i have to pay tax Rs 10,500 for the amount excess to present limit of Rs 15000.

I am not able to see good logic or meaning in this low limit. I think citizens shall have a right to use their medical limits fully , yes based actual spending.

I managed/carrying  this concern for almost last 10 years. Raising now for the befit of people like , if they also feel similar.
