In the current Union Budget for 2012-13, for preventive health check up, additional Rs.5000 would be allowed to be exempted from income tax which is over and above medical insurance rebate. In this connection, undersigned (u/s) got one email soliciting me for opting for health check up and also to recommend to others. The offer is attractive and the service is at the home. The u/s suggested to the concerned medical lab M/s Thyrocare, Mumbai. Their email is email@example.com. Thyrocare is one of the largest thyroid testing laboratory. It is accredited by ISO, NABL and college of Americal pathologists. Their website is http://www.thyrocare.com/

Health is wealth and my readers may use this opportunity for preventive Medical check up of their elders without wasting their time and disturbing them. We should insist on thyrocare that they should give the bill and other documents suitably in order to enable us to avail income tax benefit which is allowed maximum of Rs.5000 per assessee and his family. This can form the base of deal.
