You cannot claim HRA in Pune as house is already owned by you and your wife.

You can claim tax benefit for home loan interest payment for both houses. If you show both as self occupied, max 1.5 lakh exemption would be available per year. If you show notional rent (add same into taxable income) on Indore one, then there won't be any limit on interest benefit for Indore flat.

You can claim principal repayment for both flats under section 80C. Max limit under 80C is 1 lakh (combined with insurance, PPF, EPF, NPS, tax saving mutual funds, NSC etc.)
