Ask an Alim

Is it allowed to save tax this way?

Q:

I am working with an Indian company in software. The company has sent me to deputation to Switzerland for sometime.

I need to pay 12% income tax since my wife is working in India.
However if I file affidavit that my wife is not working and is fully dependent on me, i can reduce my tax ti 6%.

Basically my wife is not dependent on me but I do support my old father and mother who are mostly completely dependent on me.

Is it allowed to save tax this way?
