Deduction of Electric vehicle

Deduction of Electric vehicle

Deduction of Electric vehicle under section 80EEB allowing a deduction for interest paid on loan taken for the purchase of electric vehicles from the AY 2020-21.


During the Union Budget 2019, the government has announced an incentive for purchase electric vehicle. The Finance Minister has stated that advanced battery and registered e-vehicles will be incentivised under the scheme.

During this budget insertion new section 80EEB has been introduced allowing a deduction for interest paid on loan taken for the purchase of electric vehicles from the AY 2020-21.

Who is eligible to claim deduction under section 80EEB?

An Individual who has taken a loan for purchase of E-Vehicle from any Financial Institution and who has never owned an E-vehicle can avail such tax relief. Further, Interest payable on such loan would qualify for deduction under Section 80EEB.

What are the Conditions for claiming the deduction?

  • The Assessee should be an Individual (i.e. Deduction not available to any other taxpayer)
  • Loan should be taken for purchase of an E-vehicle for personal use or business use. In case of business use any interest payment above Rs.1,50,000/- can be claimed as a business expense. To claim as a business expense, it is necessary that vehicle should be registered in the name of the owner or the business enterprise.
  • Loan should be sanctioning during the period between 01.04.2019 and 31.03.2023.
  • Loan should be sanctioned by a FI(i.e bank or specified NBFCs).

Period of Benefit:

The benefit of deduction under this section would be available from A.Y 2020-2021 and subsequent assessment years till the repayment of loan continues.

Not just the Income tax benefit, an EV purchase will also bring you tax benefit on GST, with the government having cut the rate to 5% from the earlier 12%.

Quantum of deduction

Interest payable, subject to a maximum of Rs.1,50,000/-  and such Interest would not be allowed as deduction under any other provision of the Act for the same or any other assessment year.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
