While this may seem like a good thing at first glance, the work-from-home affair has seen a sharp rise in staff costs. On the one hand the cost of office travel and time is being saved but on the other hand working from home (Work From Home) separate internet connection, working setup, electric bill and mobile bill are also being increased. And that’s pretty much money. Before Covid, there was no thought for these costs. Because, small expenses would not be a problem to get from the office. But now it is not.

The same trend that has plagued salaried employees since 2020 has continued. Many salaried employees are still getting paid. This corona situation has given birth to work from home.

So keeping this in mind, a section of employees have demanded that if the company cannot pay the allowance, then the government should give some tax exemption. In fact, getting a tax deduction or a work-from-home allowance will go a long way in easing the pressure on workers’ pockets for internet charges, rent, electricity bills, furniture, etc.

Deloitte India has already expressed hope for this announcement in its forthcoming budget (Union Budget 2022). The company has suggested giving an additional tax deduction of Rs 50,000 to workers working from home. The same advice was given by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.
