IT Chapter VI-A Deductions 2017-18 Section 80C AY 2018-19

Income Tax Chapter VI-A Deductions for AY 2018-19 and FY 2017-18 (with 80C Deduction) are updated here. The list Chapter VI-A (Income Tax) Deductions starts with Section 80C and ends with Section 80U. This complete list of Chapter VI-A (Income Tax) Deductions for AY 2018-19 and FY 2017-18 are provided based on Union Budget 2017 introduced by the Central Government. In our previous posts, we have already provided Income Tax Slabs for AY 2018-19 and also TDS Rate chart for AY 2018-19.

The deductions are available only to the assessees where the gross total income is positive. If however, the gross total income is nil or negative, the question of any deduction from the gross total income does not arise.

For this purpose, the expression ‘gross total income’ means the total income of the assessee computed in accordance with the provisions of the Income-Tax Act, before making any deduction under Chapter VI-A (Income Tax), i.e., the aggregate income computed under each head, after giving effect to the provisions for clubbing of income and set off of losses, is known as “Gross Total Income”.

Sections 80A to 80U of the Income tax Act lay down the provisions relating to the deductions allowable to assessees from their gross total income. The income arising after deduction under section 80A to 80U is called Total Income.
