The current financial year is set to end this month. You still have 20 days left to claim income tax rebate through different investment options. With the help of some other provisions of the Income Tax Act, you can claim a rebate on investment and expenditure even after exhausting the Rs 1.5 lakh limit under Section 80C.

Here are some of the options you can explore:

Section 80D

Under this section, you can claim tax rebate up to Rs 25,000 in lieu of all the health insurance premiums paid in the year for your spouse and children. You can also claim income tax exemption up to Rs 25,000 separately on the health policy premium purchased for parents under 60 years of age. And, in case your parents are senior citizens, then you can claim up to Rs 50,000 on this item.

Section 80E

Under this section, you can claim tax exemption on the interest of education loan paid for self, spouse or children's education. However, if you have paid interest on education loan, you can claim tax rebate in the same financial year. You can take advantage of this tax rebate for eight years from the date of starting to pay the education loan. There is no maximum limit on the amount for which tax rebate can be claimed on this investment.

Section 80GG

Salaried persons, who get HRA from the employer, can claim the tax rebate on this amount under Section 80GG. If HRA is not included in salary from the employer and you are renting, then also you can claim the tax exemption under Section 80GG of Income Tax Act. For this, you have to make a declaration in Form 10 BA.

Section 80 CCD

For investment in the National Pension System, you can claim tax exemption by investing an additional Rs 50,000, which is more than the Rs 1.5 lakh prescribed under 80C.
