There is difference between exemption & abatement in context of Indian taxation **Exemption** means removing any particular income from taxability or better to say from charge of taxation **Abatement** means giving some amount like 40%, 60% etc as deduction from income earned for the expenses incurred to earn that income. It includes the cost of material provided to provide such services. Remaining part after seperating abatement is chargeable to tax

Hie Preetham, **Yes, there is a difference between exemption & abatement in context of Indian taxation.** **TAX EXEMPTION** is that part of income where no tax is liable.** Chapter III of the Income Tax Act, 1961 gives the provision for exemptions in Income Tax. **TAX ABATEMENT is the partial exemption from taxable income subject to certain conditions**. Notification No. 26/2012-ST dated 20-6-2012 provides for abatement. In case of some services, abatement is available i.e. part of tax is exempted – e.g. 40% in case of air travel, 30% in case of GTA service, 40% in case of renting or hire of motor vehicle to carry passengers. ¨
