No tax benefit available on premium paid for parentsí life insurance
I want to take a pension plan for my retirement. However, I have already reached my investment limit of R1 lakh under Section 80C. Can I claim the deduction in respect of investment in a pension plan over and above Section 80C?
Section 80CCC of the Income Tax Act stipulates that an investment in pension funds is eligible for deduction from your income. The total deduction available for investments under Section 80CCC and Section 80C is R1 lakh. This also means that your investment in pension funds cannot be claimed as deduction u/s 80CCC in addition to the Section 80C limit.
