    I have bought a flat recently which is entirely in my wife’s name. But the stamp duty and registration was paid from my account. It can be shown through bank’s statement and DD copies. Is it possible to take this deduction ?

      If your wife is working (earning) than no.

    Stamp Duty and Registration Charges for a home: The amount you pay as stamp duty when you buy a house, and the amount you pay for the registration of the documents of the house can be claimed as deduction under section 80C in the year of purchase of the house.

    Since your registration done in April 13 hence Stamp duty and Registration Charges will be also considered in April 13 not in March 13. You can claim tax benefit for AY 14-15 (FY 13-14).
