I intend to take a loan to buy a shop and give it out on rent. Are any tax benefits available in respect of the repayments on such loan? In this case, the shop will be treated as a “house property”. Hence, the calculation of income from such house property will be done like any other house property and the interest payable on such a loan will be available for deduction without any limit. However, no benefit will be available in respect of the principal repaid on such a loan.
This is because the deduction under Section 80C is restricted to loans taken to acquire/construct residential house property.
