  1. T.A.P.Krishnan says:

    The proposal to withdraw deduction of interest on self occupied property seems to lack a sense of fair approach.

    It is to be understood that a house is a fundamental requirement and therfore withdrawal of the existing provision wrt interest deduction will be very unfair if done without consideration of facts.

    The government should think of withdrawing the exemption in case of such investments in a self occupied property exceeding a particular value, say Rs 75.00 Lakhs which would be well justified as at any higher level of investment, if there is an affordabilty to invest, there should logically be an affordability to forgo interest deduction.
