Difference between Section 80C and 80CCC of the Income Tax Act, 1961

Section 80CCC of the Income Tax Act is a tax-benefit for individuals with taxable incomes - especially the ones that have an income that falls under the higher tax slab and they avail deductions that help them reduce their taxable income. It came into effect from the 1st April 1997.

However, before seeking the deductions under various heads and sub-heads, the earning professionals should briefly understand the difference between Section 80C and 80CCC of Income Tax. Eligible individuals can avail various deductions and limits under these two sections of the IT Act and use the benefits associated with them depending on the kind of investments and expenditures they have. As a citizen of India, the deductions under these sections, such as 80CCD and 80CCC, will reduce a person’s taxable pay and the subsequent assessment risk as well. The maximum limit for the deductible amount stands at ₹1.5 Lakhs.
