    Mehul, I have the same question. It’s still not clear in any of the tax blogs/articles. Should an individual (who is salaried) and making more than 20L file 29C…even though his/her regular income tax is more than AMT-calculated-tax?

    IF MY TOTAL INCOME IS MORE THAN 20 LACS, AND I AM PAYING INCOME TAX MORE THAN AMT STILL I NEED TO TAKE REPORT OF FORM 29C
