Query on tax deduction

POSTED BY rajat ON March 16, 2011 2:58 pm COMMENTS (4)

Do we have separate exemption for medical insurance premium apart from 100000 limit in general and 20000 in infrastructure category? Does this mean we can have deduction of upto 135000 from our salary?

    Yes, separate deduction for medical insurance up to 15000. Also if you take medical insurance for your parents that will give you additional deduction up to 15000.

    So, in total you can get upto 150000 (100000+20000+15000+15000) deduction (80C, 80D, 80CCF)
