    If you repaying education loan in lump sum, you can claim deduction towards interest component under Sec 80E and save tax. There is no maximum limit for such deduction.

    You can claim full deduction towards interest component of education loan under Sec 80E paid during the previous year. There is no cap on the deduction admissible.

    Your tax liability would depend upon the total income chargeable to tax after claiming all admissible deduction under Chapter VI ( including 80E).
