It would be better if you may explain with a illustration .

Pre- construction period interest Rs.3, 00,000

Interest Deduction Rs.50, 000 from financial year 2013-14 (AY 2014-15) onwards in 5 equal Annual installments (3lac/5)

30 April 2015 Thanks Deepesh Ji,

If I taken a Loan of Rs. 15,00,000/- in the f.y. 2011-12 ( out of the Rs. 15,00,000/- I purchase a land for Rs. 7,50,000/- and balance retained for construction ) and construction completed in the f.y. 2013-14 with balance amount , in that case what will be the tax treatment.

Please clarify. ( I think I am missing some point )

30 April 2015 Sir, Total Pre-construction period interest amount of Rs.3 lac.

for FY 203-14:

1st installment of Pre-construction period is Rs.60,0000/- plus Interest for FY 2013-14 say Rs.20,000/-

Total deduction available in AY 2014-15 (FY 2013-14)= Rs.80,000/-.

I hope your query resolves now. If, is there any query then message me.

30 April 2015 Thanks Deepesh Ji ,

In that case , exemption will be allowed only after completion of construction of the house, it will not allowed at the time of land acquiring along with during the period of construction.
