My friend is a salaried person. He has a joint family. He took two houses on rent. He pays a rent Rs24,000 per month for one and Rs16,000 pm for another. Both the houses are together. He thinks that he total rent should be used for computing HRA exemption as both the houses are together. But his employer is denying. Can you please advise?

Your friend is right. Rs40,000 (ie total of rent paid) should be used for HRA exemption computation.

The reason for it is that "Both the houses are together". So, they form a single unit.

Had these houses been separated houses, then he shouldn't have been allowed to claim rent for another house for HRA exemption.
