ORDER

The assessee has raised as many as six grounds of appeal. At the very outset, the ld. counsel for the assessee stated that he is not pressing Ground Nos. 1 to 4. The same are dismissed as not pressed.

2. The assessee carried the matter before the ld. CIT(A) and furnished the certificate from State Bank of Patiala. However, the ld. CIT(A) was of the firm belief that interest only upto Rs.1,50,000/- is allowable on housing loan u/s 24 read with second provison and accordingly, restricted the deduction to Rs.1,50,000/-.

3. In my considered opinion, once the rental income has been accepted by the Assessing Officer, the assessee is eligible for statutory deduction and, in addition, deduction for interest paid on loan for the purchase of house property. Considering the Certificate of State bank of Patiala, I direct the Assessing Officer to allow the claim of interest of Rs.6,58,556/-. Ground No. 5 is, accordingly, allowed.

4. In the result the appeal of the assessee in ITA No. 7278/DEL/2019 is allowed.
The order is pronounced in the open court on 15.09.2021 in the presence of both the representatives.
