    1. In case your father is a senior citizen (abv 60 years) and is suffering from any specified disease - you would be allowed a deduction of Rs 60,000 only.

    The max limit for senior citizens is Rs 60,000 only.

    2. In case loan was taken by you for an under construction building - you would be allowed deduction in 5 equal annual installements.

    1.5 Lakhs/ 5 = 30,000 p.a
