    if husband and wife are joint property owners in property as well as loan then can both claim 100% of rebate.
    I was reading and article in economic times that
    Tax Benefits on Joint Home Loan: One can avail tax benefit on home loan up to Rs 1.5 lakh under Section 80C and 2 lakh under Section 24. But if you go for a joint home loan along with your spouse in the ratio of 50: 50, then both of you can claim these benefits separately. So the combined limit will be Rs 3 lakh under Section 80C and 4 lakh under Section 24. This can reduce your overall cost of loan for the family considerably.

    is it true that eligibility amount doubles in case of joint loan.

    1. The limit has been increased from 1.5 Lakhs to Rs. 2 Lakhs
    2. This limit is per person and not per house property. The more the no. of loan borrowers - the higher the combined deduction
