Secondly as DDO(drawing and disbursing Officer) /employer we should collect enough evidence /reasonable evidence to establish that the journey has actually been performed and amount offered for exemption has actually been spent by the employee.Mere certificate ,received from the employee that he has spent so much amount on LTC is not enough to allow exemption u/s 10(5) while calculating salary income for TDS(tax deducted at source) u/s 192.So we should collect Ticket photocopy where ever practicable or Ticket Number or agent bill etc as a proof that journey has actually performed to avoid complication at later stage.
