  2. Interest on borrowed capital is allowable as deduction if capital is borrowed for the purpose of purchase, construction, repair, renewal or reconstruction of property
  3. Interest on borrowed capital is deductible on accrual basis
  4. Interest on fresh loan, taken to pay the original loan raised for aforesaid purpose is also deductible
Deduction for Amount
Self-occupied Property 1,50,000
Let out Property No Ceiling

Note: If the capital is borrowed before 1-4-1999 the deduction is Rs.30,000

Illustration:

  1. Interest of pre-construction period is deductible in 5 equal installments
  2. The first installment is deductible in the year in which construction of the property is completed or in which the property is acquired
  3. Example: If the loan is taken on 1st January 2006 and construction of the property completes in August 2010, preconstruction interest will be calculated for 4 years and 3 months

Illustration:

Deemed to be Let Out HP:

  2.  This option can be changed by the assessee year on year basis to get the maximum benefit

Hints for Tax Planning:

  1. Selection of self occupied property
  2. Municipal tax is deductible on payment basis and not on due or accrual basis, hence care must be taken to claim deduction

This chapter comes to an end. All the best!
