Tax Benefits on Education Loan

When you start repaying the education loan, the interest segment you pay towards the loan every month can be used to claim income tax deduction under Section 80E. However, the deduction cannot be claimed on the principal repayments.

Also, there is no limit on the amount you can claim for interest repayment on an education loan. As proof of this, you need to obtain a certificate from the bank. The facility is available only for eight years from the year you start repaying the loan or until the interest is fully repaid, whichever comes first.
