Dear Mr. Pankaj As per sec. 24(b) of the Income-tax Act, 1961amount of interest paid on borrowed capital is allowable deduction under the head Income from House Property up to limit Rs. 30,000/-.


no it is not posible to claim exempt


Dear Pankai, you can claim upto rs 30000 as deduction as loss from house property as interest u/s24(b). With respect to principal, you cannot claim the 80C benefit. You have to produce the usual interest certificate from the bank/Financial institution
