Its time that companies have started asking for Income Tax Investment proofs along with your HRA (House Rent Allowance) proof. As most of you might be aware as per notification from Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) made it mandatory for for anyone paying more than Rs. 1 lakh rent per annum to provide rent receipts along with their landlord’s PAN number for claiming HRA exemption (Read details by clicking here).
But there might be case that your landlord might not have a PAN card.
In that case you would need to submit a declaration from landlord stating that “He/She does not have PAN Number from Income Tax Department”. I have attached one such format. You can download the same and get it signed from your landlord.
