Deduction u/s. 80DD for expenses on medical treatment of disabled dependent

CA Sandeep Kanoi

Deduction u/s. 80DD for expenses on maintenance/ medical treatment of disabled dependent

In Past few years cost of medical treatment has shoot up very sharply and has made medical treatment almost out of reach of Lower and Middle class families in India. Government of India has in order to provide some relief to those who have a dependent with disability or sever disability provided some relief’s from Income tax under section 80DD of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

Who is eligible to claim deduction?

· Individual or a Hindu undivided family, who is a resident in India.

· Deduction u/s 80DD is not available to non-resident Indian (NRI).

What Expenses are eligible for deduction?

· Expenditure for the medical treatment (including nursing), training and rehabilitation of a disabled dependent.

· Money paid to Life Insurance Corporation (LIC), Unit Trust of India or any other insurer for the purpose of buying specified scheme or insurance for the purpose of maintenance of such dependant.

Definition of relative: Who can be your disabled dependant?

· For individuals, your spouse, son / daughter (any child), parents and brother / sister (siblings) can be your handicapped dependants.

· For HUFs, any member of the HUF can be a disabled dependant.

· The disabled person should be wholly or mainly dependant on you for his / her support and maintenance, and should not have claimed deduction under section 80U.

Some considerations for the insurance premium

· Not all schemes qualify – there are specific schemes meant for this purpose. The policy has to insure your life. i.e. it should be in your name.

· Premium is required to be paid on annual basis or a lump sum amount for the benefit of the disabled dependant.

· Nomination of Policy should be in the name of (a) your disabled dependant, or (b) any other person or trust that would receive the money for the benefit of your disabled dependant

Policies in which one can invest

· Life Insurance Corporation of India offers two insurance policies – Jeevan Aadhar and Jeevan Vishwas for the benefits of parents or guardian of person with physical disabilities which qualify for tax benefit under Section 80DD.

These policies ensure that the dependant person with physical handicap does not have to depend on anybody for financial support in case something happens to his parent or guardian. The Jeevan Aadhar is a non- profit policy and is relatively cheaper whereas the Jeevan Vishwas is a policy which participates in profits.

Under both these insurance polices, the life of the person, on whom the handicapped person is dependant, is insured. In case the dependant dies before the guardian/parent, the parent/guardian will have the option to either keep the policy for a reduced paid-up sum assured or entitled to receive the refund of premiums paid.

However if the parent/guardian dies before the dependant, 20% of the lump sum assured becomes payable for the benefit of the dependant. Moreover the balance is paid by way of monthly annuity for 15 years for sure and thereafter for life on the life of dependant.

· The health insurance cover provided by National Trust needs special mention. The trust has introduced “Niramaya” health Insurance Scheme for persons with disabilities like Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Mental Retardation etc. Under this scheme, for those who have family income of less than Rs. 15,000 per month, you need to make a payment of Rs. 250 per year. For the person having family income of more than Rs. 15,000 per month is required to pay an amount of Rs.500 per year. For the families which are Below Poverty Line (BPL) this scheme is free, provided the applicant holds the BPL card. This scheme covers health expenses up to a limit of Rs. 100,000 per year for the person suffering from these disabilities. The scheme is administered by National Trust in collaboration with ICICI Lombard. Under this scheme even existing disease are covered without any medical check up. Moreover this plan covers routine expenses like medical check up, transportation and corrective surgery etc. which are not covered under regular health insurance products.

What is considered as disability and Severe Disability?

Disability would be as defined under clause (i) of section 2 by the “Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995”.

It includes the following:

· Blindness

· Low vision

· Leprosy-cured

· Hearing impairment

· Locomotor disability

· Mental retardation

· Mental illness

· Autism

· Cerebral palsy

· Multiple disabilities

A person with disability means a person suffering from not less than 40% of any of the above disabilities.

Severe disability means 80% or more of one or more of the above disabilities.

Other Conditions to claim deduction

· For claiming the deduction in respect of the above, you have to furnish a medical certificate of disability from a Government Hospital certifying the disability of the dependant. The certificate needs to be renewed periodically.

· For people having Autism, Cerebral Palsy or multiple disabilities, form number 10-IA needs to be filled up. There are two other formats for person suffering from mental illnesses and all other disabilities.

· People have to furnish self declaration certifying the expenditure incurred on account of medical treatment (including nursing), training and rehabilitation of the handicapped dependant.

· You do not have to preserve the actual receipts for expenses incurred. However you will have to produce the actual receipts in case you claim deduction in respect of payment made to LIC, UTI etc for the purpose of buying insurance or other schemes for maintenance of such dependant.

Who can issue medical certificate of disability?

· Neurologist having a degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD) in Neurology (or, in case of children, a Pediatric Neurologist having an equivalent degree)

· A Civil Surgeon or Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of a government hospital

Taxability of Premium Amount Paid in Case disable dependant dies before the taxpayer:- In case your disabled dependant predeceases you (that is, dies before you); the amount in the policy is returned to you. This would be treated as your income for the year in which you receive it, and would be fully taxable in your hands.

Amount of Deduction and Tax Saving

  • The deduction allowed is Rs. 50,000 if disabled dependant is not suffering from severe disability.
  • Deduction allowed goes up to Rs. 1,00,000 if disabled dependant is a person with severe disability.
  •  Deduction not depend on amount of expenses incurred:- Even if your actual expenses on above mentioned disabled dependent relative is less then amount mentioned above you will be eligible to full deduction.
  • The income tax that you can save would depend on the tax bracket that you fall into – it can range from Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 15,000 (for Rs. 50,000 deduction) or from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 30,000 (for Rs. 1,00,000 deduction).

Please Note -

a) Individuals would need to produce a copy of the disability certificate as issued by the central or state government medical board to claim deduction.

b) Insurance policy obtained must be in your name and should be a policy for life. It could pay either an annuity or a lump sum amount for the benefit of the dependent on your death.

c) If the disabled dependent predeceases you, the policy amount is returned to you, and treated as income for the year in which you receive it, thus fully taxable in your hands.

Conclusion:- The physical and mental agony experienced by the parents/ guardian of such dependants cannot be taken away but Government of India, National Trust, LIC and other charitable institutions are doing commendable job by reducing the financial agony of such families. It is important for all of us to look for such benefits available and talk these about in various media to take it across as many people as possible. This is a bit of social work which can give relief to handicapped persons and their parents.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question – I am a salaried person who had a son with hearing impairment. My son underwent an operation for cochlear implantation and I spent around Rs 6 lakh for it. Can I get any tax benefit for the treatment expenses?

Answer:- Section 80DD allows a deduction to an individual or HUF if the person has incurred in the previous year any expenditure on medical treatment (including nursing), training and rehabilitation of a dependant with a disability or paid or deposited any amount under a scheme framed in this behalf by an insurer for the maintenance of a dependant with a disability.

A person with a disability is one suffering from not less than 40 per cent of a disability (as certified by a medical authority working in a hospital or institution notified by the Government), which could be blindness, low vision, leprosy – cured, hearing impairment, locomotor disability, mental retardation, mental illness.

Hearing impairment, for this purpose, means a loss of 60 decibels or more in the better ear in the conversational range of frequencies.

A person with disability also includes the one suffering from autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation or a combination of any two or more. Section 80DD allows a deduction of up to Rs 50,000 a year and if the disability is severe, up to Rs 1,00,000 a year. Severe disability means a person with 80 per cent or more of the disability. You can claim deduction if your fits into these categories.

Question:- My father is a pensioner and his pension is less than my salary. My sister is a disabled dependant with 85% disability. She is dependant on me. Can I get rebate under section 80DD? My Assessing Officer says that your father is alive and is getting pension; so you cannot claim deduction. Is it true?

Answer:- Your Assessing Officer is not correct. The deduction u/s 80DD is for dependant of an individual tax payer and dependant includes brother and sister of Individual. You can furnish to Your Assessing officer an undertaking from your father that your sister is dependant on you and not on your father.

Question:- I have a handicapped dependant who is my cousin ( Daughter of my mother’s sister). She is completely dependant on me and every month I spend Rs 10,000. She is suffering from 85 % Blindness and mental problem. I wanted to know whether I can claim tax benefit under 80DD?

Answer U/s. 80DD dependant means in the case of an individual, the spouse, children, parents, brothers and sisters of the individual or any of them;

It is clear that section 80DD is applicable only if the person on whom you are spending are any one of following

  •  your wife or husband
  •  your children
  •  your parents
  •  your brother
  •  your sister
  •  your wife’s or husband’s brother or sister
  •  your parents’ brother or sister

The Daughter of your mother’s sister is, clearly, not coming under the definition of dependant for the purpose of claim of deduction u/s 80DD. So, you can not claim deduction u/s. 80DD in respect of expenses incurred for her maintenance and medical treatment.

  56. Prashant Nair says:

    I have to urgently undergo a transplantation and my school friends have decided to contribute around 50,000 rs to 1,50,000 each towards collecting 10,00,00 required for the operation. I want to know, me not falling under the efinition of Relative, will they be eligible for deduction undet the act ? The Act saya the the dependant should be ‘mainly’ dependent on this money for treatment which is also my situation as my only source of income is fathers pension and not Savings or investment or in other words i am solely dependent or mainly dependent on this money provided by friends. Also would it help if i provide documentary support of the use of money for my surgery to the tax authorities ? Anyway i can claim that this money would have been given to charitablee institution which the would have gone towards saving a non relatives life, …so it is all the more reasonable that they should be allowed deduction as presents itself as a case of genuine and emergency medical help? Your reply will be extremely valuable to me ?
