Extension of date of sanction of loan for affordable residential house property under Union Budget 2021

The existing provision of the section 80EEA of the Act, inter alia, provides a deduction in respect of interest on loan taken for a residential house property from any financial institution up to one lakh fifty-thousand rupees subject to the condition that the loan has been sanctioned during the period beginning on 1st April, 2019 and ending on 31st March, 2021. There are further conditions that the stamp duty value of residential house property does not exceed forty-five lakh rupees and the assessee does not own any residential house property on the date of sanction of loan. This provision allows deduction to the first time home buyers, in respect of interest on home loan. In order to help such first time home buyers further, it is proposed to amend the provision of section 80EEA of the Act to extend the outer date for sanction of loan from 31st March 2021 to 31st March 2022.

This amendment will take effect from 1st April, 2022 and will accordingly apply to the assessment year 2022-23 and subsequent assessment years.

Clause 24 of the Bill seeks to amend section 80EEA of the Income-tax Act relating to deduction in respect of interest on loan taken for certain house property.

The said section, inter alia, provides for deduction in respect of interest on loan taken for a residential house property from any financial institution up to one lakh fifty-thousand rupees subject to the condition that the loan has been sanctioned during the period beginning on 1st April, 2019 and ending on 31st March, 2021. This is subject to further condition that the stamp duty value of residential house property does not exceed forty-five lakh rupees and the assessee does not own any residential house property on the date of sanction of loan.

    Dear Sir,
    In an instant case Sale Consideration of Flat is 52 Lacs, Stamp Duty Value is 45 Lacs. Stamp Duty Assessable Value is 52 Lacs (Higher of Sale Consideration or Stamp Duty Value). Loan Sanctioned between April 19 to March 22. Can deduction under Section 80EEA be taken in this case as the Stamp Duty Assessable Value is exceeding 45 Lacs but Stamp Duty Value by itself is not exceeding 45 Lacs.
