Sir, In other replies for education fee exemption, you have mentioned that School fee (i.e. tution fee) is exempted upto Rs 100000 under section 80 (C). Please clarify. Regards, Vikas Singhal

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.
