I am an Indian Resident. I work for Uttarakhand Govt as a public servant. Annually, while calculating our income tax for the year, the treasury denied a deduction u/s 80D for a sum of Rs 14500. This expense was incurred for mediclaim policy for me and my wife and children.
Treasury gave the reason that we are provided with govt aided medical insurance for which also I have paid Rs. 1200. Last year I was allowed the deduction, but not this year. Is the treasury right to do so?
