    Dear Aparna

    The Stamp Duty paid can be claimed as a deduction under Section 80C in which year in which the flat was registered. So it can be claimed for the Financial year 2012-13 i.e. Assessment Year 2013-14

    The Home Loan processing fee cannot be claimed as a tax exemption

    Does the stamp duty paid should be claimed only after possession or registered FY? Also, As per recent tribunal, "Processing fee" can be claimed as interest after possession? right?

    Stamp Duty paid can be claimed in the year of Registration.

    As far as Processing Fee is concerned, the Judgements of Tribunal cannot be relied upon as they can always be challenged. Different tribunals have different stand-points...
