2015-16, 2016-17 as his return of income is below basic exemption limit. now in
2017-18 he has received amount of 200000 250000 300000 respectively for above
mentioned years as arrears of salary.
As he has not filled previous return whether he
is eligible for relief under 89. He is eligible to claim deduction of chapter
VI like 80c for above mention year as he has not filled that returns.

relief under section 89(1) read along with Rule 21A.
