On adding Interest on Housing Loan and 1/5 th of PEMI component, if the amount is greater than Rs. 150000/- how much deduction can be considered?  e.g. if Interest on housing loan is Rs. 125000/- plus 1/5th PEMI interest Rs. 35000/- totaling to Rs. 160000/-, how much deduction will be allowed, Rs. 150000/- or Rs. 160000/-.  Please elaborate.

Helloo Friend...


As per section 24, Interest on house can be claimed  in the financial year in which u acquired the property OR loan has been fully paid ........ATLEAST ONE CONDITION SHOULD BE FULFILLED


For example if u acquired a property on 1st may 2013, then u can clain all the interent (till march 2013) in 5 equal instalments.


if your total interest is 50,000 (till march 2013) then u can clam 50000/5= 10000+ interest of current year (from 1st april 2013 to 31st march 2014) in fy 2013-14


in case of self occupied property u can clain deduction Upto Rs,150000, if u borrowed on or after 1st april 1999 and construction is completed in 3 years from the end of fy in which the capital is borrowed.


And in case of let out their is no limit for interest deduction, u can claim above Rs 150000
