Is it mandatory to have Rent Agreement Notarized/Registered for submitting Investment proof for Fin year 2012-2013?
I have 11 months Rent agreement done in Pune for amount of Rs. 500 stamp paper and my rent paid is above 10k.
My employer is denying rent agreement and corresponding rent receipts as an investment proof saying that he needs a Notarized rent agreement.
My question is : Is it right on my employers part to deny rent agreement on the basis that it in not notarized ? How can i avoid this.
Please if possible, let me know where in Income tax document it is mentioned that Notarized rent agreement is mandatory.
