An employee receives many types of allowances in the form of salary while some allowances such as conveyance allowance, medical allowance, HRA, etc. are exempt from income tax while dearness allowance is completely taxable. Hence, the IT Department allows you to deduct the exempt allowances from salary to arrive at the figure of taxable salary.
Since you have not received form 16 from your employer, you must verify Form 26AS to know about the TAN and TDS deducted by your Employer
If you have other income as well apart from salary then sum up all the income like Income from renting of House property , capital gains from sale of assets , income from other sources like interest on bank deposits, RDs, FDs etc.
Deduct tax benefit from the above computed income like investments made under NSC, LIC, tuition fees, PPF, and repayment of principal of housing loan under section 80C. Similarly, donations made to charitable institutions can be claimed under section 80G, and payment made towards premium of medical insurance policy can be claimed in section 80D.

Further, it is the obligation of the employer to provide a Form 16 to all employees by 31 May of the assessment year (AY), otherwise, the employer can be liable to pay a penalty of Rs. 100 for each day by which he delays issuance of this certificate.
