House rent brokerage

You can show it in expenditure. But how the government will pay you the money? It's a service cost that has been charged by you from the broker. It doesn't make any sense. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

As far as the section goes, only the amount of "rent paid" is considered for the purposes of calculation of deduction among other conditions.
And the amount of rent paid can be verified from the rent receipts. So, the brokerage paid cannot be taken as deduction according to the above interpretation.
