    If a minor suffering from disability specified under section 80U will not be clubbed with the income of his/her parent.

    • Income of Ajay from bank interest: Rs. 9,000
    • Income of Vijay from bank interest: Rs. 1,20.,000

    Thus, income of Ajay from stage show will not be clubbed with the income of Mr. Rajesh but income from bank interest of Rs. 9,000 will be clubbed with the income of Mr. Rajesh

    Any income of Vijay will not be clubbed with the income of Mr. Rajesh

    However, taxpayer can claim an exemption, in respect of interest income of Rs. 6,000 clubbed in the income of Mr. Raja, he will be entitled to claim exemption of Rs. 1,500. Hence, net income to be clubbed will be Rs. 4,500 (i.e., Rs. 6,000 - Rs. 1,500).
