Exemption u/s 89, Salary arear

In the financial year 2021-22, along with the salary, the arrears of 2020-21 have also come. In the financial year 2020-21, ITR has been filed from old tax regime, now I am filing ITR from new tax regime in 2021-22, so in 10E Can I calculate arrears under the new tax regime?

Hi @Ramesh

Yes, arrears are calculated under the new tax regime also, filing Form 10IE, in order to claim relief under Sec 89(1) of the Income Tax Act.
