Deduction Under Chapter VI A (Section 80C to Section 80U)
In Computing total income of an assessee, deduction under chapter VI A (u/s 80C to u/s 80U ) are allowed from Gross Total Income(GTI). Deduction under chapter VI A helps assessee to reduce tax liability.
Some Important point to be noted –
a) Deduction under chapter VI A shall not exceed Gross Total Income. It means Gross Total Income can not be negative.
e.g. if Gross Total Income – Rs. 2,30,000 and Total deduction under chapter VI A – Rs.2,75,000. So in this case, deduction upto Rs 2,30,000 is allowed. So that Gross Total Income can be reduced to NIL. Remaining deduction can not be carried forward for next assessment year.
b) Deduction is allowed only if it is claimed by assessee in his return of Income.
c) Deductions are not allowed from certain income. e.g. Long Term Capital Gain, Short term capital gain covered under section 111A, Winning of lotteries, Winning of races etc.
