Tax deduction is available for amount paid for registration and stamp duty charges of house. This is u/s 80C and maximum limit is Rs 1 lakh.
Please note that this is not a extra deduction but under 80C. 1 lakh is total limit of 80C which may have life insurance, ELSS mutual funds, PPF, EPF etc also.
