Hi adding to @Ankith

S 24b : If construction is not completed within 5 years, only Rs. 30,000/ can be claimed
S 80EE : Rs.50,000/ can be claimed by first time house buyers only
Co-borrower can also claim the benefit subject to being co-owner of the said residential property


Agreeing with Ankit and Bharat first time buyer can also avail Tax benefit under 80C towards Stamp Duty and Registration , although there is no exemption available u/s 80EE.


Thanks all. Very helpful.
