I and my wife both are Salary Earners and getting HRA (House Rent Allowance). Now I am employed at DUBAI in a Foreign Company and living there.

I have two houses in India.
One house is rented and in other house my family (Wife) is living.
I am living out of Country due to my employment.

Can I give my house to my wife on Rent and can my wife claim HRA exemption?

For Income in India such as Rent and Interest on Deposits in Bank I will be filing Income Tax Return as per Income Tax Act.
