  1. Dear Amit, as your wife is the owner & you are merely co-applicant, you can not claim any tax benefit out of this house property. Be it for stamp duty under section 80C or home loan repayment under section 80C or interest on home loan under section 24(b).

    sorry but this is the truth. To avail tax benefit, ownership in the house property is a pre condition.
