Claiming IT Benefit under 80E - Interest repaid on Education Loan

Share This Thread


    Sir ,
    my son has taken education loan for higher studies abroad towards which only a portion of the loan amount is released as per our request and interest on the same is already is being charged by the bank . The actual loan repayment has not started yet . To reduce the burden of EMI when actually fixed , I have been paying interest as and when it is debited to the a/c ( monthly ) .
    My question is , can I claim the entire interest paid for the year on the education loan as exemption under 80 E ( which is around Rs 10000/- p.m.)?

    yours sincerely
