14. What kind of Tax Benefit does an individual get while applying for a Home Loan?
Many of us have taken home loans / mortgages to buy our house. One of the most important motivators for availing a housing loan is the income-tax benefit that it provides.

If you have availed of a home loan, you can claim tax benefits on both the principal and interest components of the home loan as per the Income Tax Act. These benefits are in the form of deductions available to assesses who have taken a loan to either buy a house or build one. You can reduce your tax liability by a maximum of Rs. 6,250 per month (Rs. 75000 p.a.)

Under section 80(c), repayment of principal of up to Rs. 1 lac is deductible in full from your income which means you can save tax up to a maximum of Rs. 30,000 p.a. on principal. Similarly under section 24 of the Income Tax Act, interest is deductible up to a maximum of Rs. 1.5 lac. Thus, this leads to an additional saving of a maximum of Rs. 45,000 p.a.
