Budget 2013: Chidambaram's big incentive to buy a home this year

First home buyers got a shot in the arm after Finance Minister P Chidambaram announced additional deduction on payment of interest for homes below Rs. 25 lakh.

First housing loan of up to Rs. 25 lakh will be eligible for extra Rs. 1 lakh tax deduction, Mr Chidambaram said. Currently, the deduction limit for payment of interest for self-occupied property is Rs. 1.5 lakh.

The deduction will be applicable for loans taken in fiscal 2013-14.

It is restricted because the government wants to encourage affordable housing in the country. They do not want the benefit to go to investors or HNIs.

But do you think you can get anything even affordable houses in this budget in national capital region.

I would interpret it as government is encouraging affordable housing in tier 2 cities.

Budget announcement seems good for new home buyers and first time buyers because they are offered taxation benefit under tax schemes like Income Tax Act Section 24 B offers deduction.
