are Ex-service men and physically challenged persons exempted from professional tax?

Employees of Department of Posts have been paid from the Consolidated Fund of India, as there is no revenue from this Department. It is a service Department. Employees whose income derived from the revenue of Govt. are only liable to pay Professional Tax, not all. This provision application to Undertakings like, ONGC, SAIL, LIC, BSNL, etc. because their employees pay fixed from the revenue earned by the professional business run by them.

As for as Department of Posts is concerned, there is no revenue earned by the Deptt. as it is a service Department. Therefore, employees of Department of Post are not liable to pay Professional tax.
