Is maintenance paid entitled to relief in income tax?

Dear friends, 

Is payment of maintenance entitled to relief in income tax under Section 80C?

I request members to please guide me, as I need to file income tax returns.

I am paying monthly maintenance of Rs. 3,000 under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act.

Experts can throw some light on this issue. It is an interesting question though.


In my view, it is not expemted because your wife will not be able to show this income in her income tax return.

Can be shown as expenditure

The same cannot be claimed as deduction however it is the income for your wife and she should be disclosing it in her Income Tax Return
