House rent recipient in case of multiple landlord


I want to claim HRA exemption by paying rent to my parents. Both the father and mother owns 50% of the house each. So while generating rent receipt I should mention both of them as land lord in same receipt or any one is fine or need to generate separate receipt in each name. In case of both of them in same receipt then is it ok to mention any one pan or both the PAN in receipt. When my parents file the return, is the rent amount split equally between the two under property incomes?

@pushpasooraj Hi,

It is advisable to mention name of both the landlords in the receipt. There is no need to make 2 different receipts. Since both the individuals will show Income from rent while filing ITR, it is better if you mention both the PAN on the receipt.

Hope this helps !
