    its look like for more for assessee not for prof. as too much missing on 80 C part Like Premium for children and premium by HUF of its members etc.

  2. SUBRAM says:

    Why is ELSS missing in the list of deductions under 80-C? I presume that purchase of Units under ELSS continue to be eligible for deduction under sec 80 C.

  3. Satish Tikekar says:

    Very informative article. However, sec.80 TTB needs more clarification on specified amount of interest! Similarly sec dealing with preventive medical check-up is not there.
