    Section 24 of the Income Tax Act states that if a property is still to be constructed, there will not be any deductions on the interest payment all of those years. The interest for the pre-construction period can be availed for the deduction in the 5 equal installments from the year the construction is complete. So your friend cannot claim any interest deduction for loan paid.

    There are different Income Tax returns form based on

  2. Dear Etaxmentor, your client ‘ll not get interest benefit for the under construction stage for FY 2012-2013. The same can be claimed only after the possession of the flat. So the routine form for him or her ‘ll be ITR-1 for salary + interest income & in case any capital gain is there, it ‘ll be ITR-2.
