Home loan

A home loan comes with benefits. It helps you accomplish a major milestone in life by making it easier for you to build or buy your own house. It comes with affordable rates of interest. And in most cases, the home loan eligibility criteria are also easy to meet, making it possible for most people to access housing finance without any hassle.

But these are not the only advantages of availing a home loan. Did you know that there are also many tax benefits that you can enjoy each financial year, all thanks to the loan you availed for constructing or purchasing your dream home?

In fact, home loan tax benefits can go up to Rs. 5 lakhs per year! Want to know how this works? Check out the details below.

Tax benefits under section 80C of the Income Tax Act

Under this section, the principal component of your EMI is deductible from your total taxable income up to Rs. 1.5 lakhs per financial year. The one-time stamp duty and registration charges are also eligible for deduction under this section.
