How to show education loan proof while filing Income tax return ITR-1

Hello, Can we submit the proof of interest paid as part of education loan while filing returns? I didn't submit my education loan repayment proof to my employer and hence my form 16 doesn't show it under 80E. Can you suggest how can I submit the proof now while filing the ITR-1 and can get the refund of income tax deducted? How income tax department will verify about my education loan ?

Yes, you can claim deduction u/s 80E while filing income tax return and get refund for excess tax paid.

There is no proof required while filing the return, but in case income tax department has doubts, they can send a notice for proofs.

In case you receive an intimation, you can send form-16 and education loan interest proof later.
