    i understood about stamp duty. But registration means is it the registration of plot on my name before construction? or house registration is different?

  3. Dear Sateesh, within the over all limit of 1l Rs. of section 80c, you can claim stamp duty & registration charges. To claim this benefit, the copy of stamp duty receipt & registration docs are required.

    Stamp Duty and Registration Charges for a home: The amount you pay as stamp duty when you buy a house, and the amount you pay for the registration of the documents of the house can be claimed as deduction under section 80C in the year of purchase of the house.
    So Max Limit is Rs 1L. But you may have already exhausted this limit due to prinicpal of Home Loan, Insurance premium, PPF/EPF etc…
