Sec 80C of the Income Tax Act is the section that deals with these tax breaks. It states that qualifying investments, up to a maximum of Rs. 1 Lakh, are deductible from your income. This means that your income gets reduced by this investment amount (up to Rs. 1 Lakh), and you end up paying no tax on it at all. This benefit is available to everyone, irrespective of their income levels. Thus, if you are in the highest tax bracket of 30%, and you invest the full Rs. 1 Lakh, you save tax of Rs. 30,000.

For FY 2010-2011, Rs. 20,000 tax exemption will be provided for investments in certain investment bonds. This is in addition to the already allowed exemption (Rs. 1,00,000) in certain savings instruments.

Apart from this you can claim benefits u/s.80D, 80DD, 80DDB, 80G on satisfaction of certain conditions.
