    No, you cannot claim Income Tax Deduction for Investment in Shares. Deduction under Section 80C is only allowed for investment in Mutual Funds.

    Moreover, not all investments in mutual funds are allowed to be claimed as a deduction. Only, the Investment in ELSS Mutual Funds can be claimed as a deduction
