    Dear Swamy,

    Since home loan offers tax benefit and thus reduces your tax liability. You may invest your money in avenues which can fetch you better returns than the interest rates than the home loan interest that you will be paying (less the adjusted tax advantage).

    You may look at putting your money in Equity MF / Debt MF depending upon your requirement for goals and risk appetite.

    Thanks for the information.
    Now I have 10 lakhs cash, is it better to buy a flat without loan or with loan. In which option I will save more money? I am in 20% income bracket and paying premium of 75000/year.

  3. Dear Swamy, the principal benwefit ‘ll be limited to over al 1L Rs. which I think you have covered already. Regarfing the Interest benefit, you w’d have to show the rental income & then full interest with out any limit you can show.

    For detailed calculation please check some prev. discussions here.
