Eligibility for Deduction under Section 80TTA

Interest on Savings Account
Interest income received from a savings account deposit is eligible for deduction under Section 80TTA. The savings account deposit can be maintained with a public sector bank, private sector bank, cooperative society or post office.
Interest on Bank Deposits
Interest earned on a bank fixed deposit or time deposit will not be eligible for deduction under Section 80TTA. Time deposits mean deposits repayable on expiry of fixed periods.

NRI Eligibility for Section 80TTA Deduction

NRI Eligibility for Section 80TTA Deduction

Like Resident Indians, NRIs can also claim deductions on income from interest on saving bank account. Since NRIs can only hold NRE or NRO saving account, and given interest earned on NRE saving account is tax-free, this section effectively applies to only interest earned on the NRO saving account. Thus, this tax deduction is only applicable to saving account deposit and not on NRO term deposit which is subject to TDS @ 30.9%.
