In your description on the proposed provisions for deductions from income u/s 80C for FY2012-13, you mention the amount as Rs. 1200 per annum. I think this amount if per month. Please clarify.
Children education allowance and 80C tuition fees deduction are two different things.
If your employer has provision of children education allowance in your salary, then 100 Rs per school going child (upto maximum two child) is non taxable. This makes it Rs 1200 per year for a child.
80C deduction also allows children tuition fees deduction. It does not have a limit and this deduction can be taken upto Rs 1 lakh combined 80C deduction.
