  1. can you advice me i have received maturity amount of rs 217000 polciy was teken in 2001 jewwan dhara table no.145 pension this amount taxable?

    1. In case of pension plans 1/3 amount is paid in lumpsum on maturity which is tax free. For rest you would receive annuity which would be taxable! I think the amount you received is the lumpsum part and hence tax free!

  2. I am a pensioner of U P govt. and the statement from the treasury shows gross pension and commuted amount separately though I have received net amount of pension which is gross amount minus commuted amount. Whether Income tax calculation is to be on gross or on net pension.

  3. Hi , i am working as a consultant for a company. Pl share what would be the deductions if my gross salary is 150000 per month.

    In the income tax declaration provided by my company there was no mention regarding contributions to charity. How do we claim for the same?

  7. How and under what section should one claim the Interest paid on a home loan prior to gaining possession of the house? I know the interest paid has to be divided into 5 equal parts…Is there any limit to this per year?

    1. The pre-possession interest paid is to be claimed under the same section as home loan interest (Sec 24). There is no limit if the house is rented but for self-occupied the cap is at 2 lakhs (which include current FY interest + 1/5 of pre-possession interest paid)
