SECOND HOME LOAN - Can IT deduction be availed for it ?


I am a salaried person working in a government department. I file my IT return regularly and I have my PAN No. also. Sir, I would like to request you to kindly go through the two cases, mentioned below and please enlighten me with your valuable advices.

CASE - I I purchased a flat in 2003 by taking a Home Loan from ICICI Bank. I repaid & foreclosed the home loan in 2009. From 2003 to 2009, I availed Income Tax Deduction on this Loan (i.e. both on Interest & Principal components).

CASE - II I purchased a SECOND flat on 28.09.2011 (Date of Registration) by taking another home loan; this time from SBI. And I SOLD my earlier flat on 14.10.2011 (Date of Registration).

Now, Sir, I would like to know : (1) Can I avail Income Tax Deduction on this SECOND HOME LOAN ? (2) If yes, will it be just like the earlier one [Like both on Interest and Principal component] ? (3) I purchased the new flat for Rs.18,25,000/- (excluding Stamp duty, registration fees etc.) and sold my earlier flat for Rs.14,85,000/- (excluding Stamp duty, registration fees etc.). Is there any CAPITAL GAINS TAX, to be payable ? (Deed value of my earlier flat is/was Rs.4,00,000/-)

Thank you, Rajib

  1. You can avail income tax deduction on interest and principal paid towards second home loan too.
  2. It will be like earlier one too.
  3. As you purchased a new flat within one year before sale of old one, with cost more than gains, there won't be any income tax liability from sale of old flat, u/s 54.
