      Q.1- 80C does not allow deduction for pre-construction repayment of principal.
      Q.2 – No. There is no need to split interest. Whole of interest for f.y 2017-18 is allowed.
      Q.3 – The income if any received as rent should be shown under the head ”Income from house property ”. The Gross Annual Value of the property will be actual rent received or receivable.
      A basic deduction of 30% can be allowed under section 24(a) and any interest paid on loan taken can also be allowed as deduction under section 24(b).
      Q.4 – It must be a personal decision whether to sell or withhold the property. If only financial calculation is to be made then send me figures, I will make a comparison and tell you. You can mail at prateek@taxadda.com to maintain privacy.
