House Rent Allowance (HRA) is an allowance granted by employers to their employees to meet their house rent expenses. The HRA of a salaried individual is primarily based on the following factors:

  • City of residence
  • Basic salary

If an individual does not live in a rented accommodation, the entire HRA component of his/her salary is taxable. On the other hand, if one pays rent regularly, a part of the HRA component is exempt from tax.
