    have sold two of my plot recently n the last 4 months and I am going yo purchase one residential house. If I bought this house in the name of my wife (house wife) and bank loan in my name. So my queries are:-
    1. Can I get capital gain tax rebate on this property or not?
    2. Can I get income tax rebate on my bank house loan or not?

    1. KUMARA VELU says:

      If the Plot sold is held for more than 24 months then your can invest in residential house avail exemption under section 54F even though you invest on your wife name, but with condition that it has to be used for self occupation.
      2. You can claim income tax rebate for principal paid on loan under section 80C upto Rs 150000/-
      Housing loan interest can also be claimed under self occuptied Upto Rs200000/
      But housing loan benefit for interest will come only if loan taken for cost of purchase of house is over and above the sale consideration of 2 plot.
