Dear Amita,
It would appreciate if u could provide the break-up of your salary.
However, i could give u the general information.
Under 80C u can claim rebate by investing in PPF, NSC VIII issue, by paying premium on LIC, by investing in mutal funds, Bank deposits for 5 years. The limit is Rs.100,000/-
Under 80D--Premim on mediclaim is also exempt.
Interest on house loan comes under Income from House property, whereas principal amt. falls under 80C.
I hope this will help!
