Wear and tear and petrol claim on my ITR12?



Can I claim for wear and tear on my vehicle even though I am an employee and work at the office from 9 to 5 daily? Can I also claim for petrol and if so how would I calculate this?

No you cannot, this must be for work purposes only - driving to work and back does not qualify.
