If you are buying an affordable home for the first time, you will not get the benefit of an additional deduction of Rs 1.5 lakh under Section 80 EEA on the interest paid. If the value of the house is less than Rs 45 lakh, a deduction of up to Rs 1.5 lakh in interest payments could be claimed till now. This deduction or exemption was in addition to the exemption of Rs. 2 lakhs received under section 24B. This benefit was only available to taxpayers who took out a home purchase loan between April 1, 2019, and March 31, 2022.
