Exemption of cea

I had claimed Rs.2400/- exemption under children education allowance for my two children, however my employer allowed only Rs.1200/-  in form 16 for the reason that I had claimed reimbursement for tution fees for only one child. Both are in classed below class X.
Is there any relation in the exemption of Rs.100/- per month  per child and claim for reimbursement of tuition fees ?
Can I efile my returns claiming Rs.2400/- with my own computation. In my opinion the employers will not change form 16.

Dear Sir,

I think reimbursement of tuition fee is not shown as a part of your salary income in your Form 16. If yes, then you can claim deduction only in respect of one child.

Please feel free to call/revert in case of any issues.
