    one more important point missed here is from the memorandum provided with the bill, it clearly mentions that the additional benifits are applicable only on properties sanctioned after 1st of September 2019.

  2. SREEDHARAN says:

    The assessee should not own any other house property but section 80EEA states additional Rs.150k over and above existing limit of Rs. 200k.
    Could not understand
