Does Home Loan Processing Fee comes under 80C investments

My account department says that the Home Loan Processing Fee comes under the 80C investments (Section 2(28A)). As my 80C investment limit is exhausted, I cannot get any exemption on the Rs. 11000 I paid as the processing fee. Is this correct?

As per section 2(28A), the processing fee can be treated as interest, so it can be claimed as part of Interest, after completion of construction/possession. Its not a part of 80-C deduction.

@pankaj: Thats means I can only claim deduction after possession, and not before that? There are still 2-3 months till I get the possession.

yes, you can only claim deduction after getting the possession. Same is applicable with home loan principal as well.
