Sir, A flat was purchased and registered in my son and wife's name. Housing loan was taken for the same flat from bank. The EMI is paid by me. Bank issues the interest and Principal certificate in favor of my son and my wife as applicant and me as co applicant. Thus on the interest certificate all three names are there. Kindly guide me as to who can and how much each can claim the interest on housing loan u/s 24 and principal u/s 80C. Looking forward to your guidance. Regards. K. Subramanian
Ans: In the scenario you described, since you are the one paying the EMI and listed as a co-applicant on the loan, you can claim the tax benefits associated with the home loan. Here's how it works:

Interest on Housing Loan (Section 24): You, as a co-applicant and the one paying the EMI, can claim the tax deduction on the interest component of the home loan under Section 24 of the Income Tax Act. Since your name is on the interest certificate issued by the bank, you can claim the deduction. The maximum deduction allowed is up to Rs. 2 lakh per financial year for a self-occupied property.

Principal Repayment (Section 80C): Similarly, you can also claim the tax deduction on the principal repayment component of the home loan under Section 80C. However, the maximum deduction allowed under this section is up to Rs. 1.5 lakh per financial year.

Since your son and wife are the legal owners of the property, they do not qualify for these tax benefits unless they are also contributing to the repayment of the loan. It's essential to maintain proper documentation and consult with a tax advisor for accurate advice tailored to your specific situation.

Sir what is your advice to buy shares of Adani group companies? which company equity shares you will advise to buy from Adani group.
Ans: First of all we need to understand the questions being asked by Hindenberg and try to evaluate whether the allegation made by them makes any sense. If anyone goes through the Hindenberg report than the allegations and questions asked can be bifurcated into below broad categories:

1) Violations of Exchange and listed rules
2) Dubious Intra- Party Transactions
3) Use of Shell companies outside india ( Mauritius) to manuipulate the stock price
4) Money laundering through private Adani companies in listed companies of Adani inorder to look Balance sheet good.
5) Inexperienced Chartered accountants to audit the companies.
6) Using stocks as collateral for debt.

Looking at this points and also the allegations done by Hindenberg, i am fine to believe that there are few acts which they taken for granted and manipulate the exchange and listing rules but calling Adani company as CON or Fraud is not what i would call this company. Companies margin are very low as compared to their cost of capital but being an infrastructure led company its takes long gestation period to realise the cash flows.

Adani is playing important role in building infrasturcture in India with ports, power, airports etc and even though company is highly levered to build the assets and cash flow, the company has good physical assets in the balance sheet. Even though it may not a investible company for a retail invstor with the sort of volatility and margins they are earning.

Valuations are very much stretch with last 2 years price going to the roof. As a retail investor, one should avoid this company due to many uncertainties going forward.

Out of all Adani Companies, Adani Ports have the most comfortable position.
