My husband passed away a few months ago at the age of 53 years. He was an employee of the state of Uttarakhand. He was supposed to be retired at the age of 58 years. I was asked to receive his salary for 5 years and then I will get pension my entire life.
Please let me know, as a widow, is this salary taxable or exempt in my hands? And if it is taxable, how much exemption am I eligible to claim? And if I should file my return.
