How to consider Pre-emis when construction completed in same year of availing loan

POSTED BY Muthu ON August 6, 2012 1:37 am COMMENTS (2)

Suppose I start the construction of my house in June 2012 and complete it in November 2012.
I avail a home loan and get the first disbursement by July 2012. Since then, I start paying pre-emi (around 80000 totally) till November.
From December 1, I start paying my EMI.
From the bank’s statement, I can know the principal and the interest component of my EMI.
But, the pre-emis can be considered only till the Financial year before the Year of completion of the construction (i.e., 2011-2012 : when I have not even started the construction and did not get loan) and then distribute equally into 5 parts in future years.
Since all these things happen in same financial year, please guide me how to claim the pre-emis.

Can this amount of 80000 be added to interest part of this year, along with the interest component of the EMIs?

    Thank you very much Ashal. That perfectly clarifies my question.

  2. Dear Muthu, if the loan disbursal & completion of house happens in the same FY, the Pre EMI’s or the interest paid out ‘ll be added to the interest in the running EMIs.

    For example – in your given case – say 70K is the interest from dec to march period in full EMI, the total interest under consideration for the purpose of tax benefit ‘ll be 80K+70K = 1.5L Rs.
