Your tax benefit on the new loan will start from the date you will draw amount from it. Approval does not amount to enjoying the limit. If the amount is drawn before march, and interest accrual is there till
31 st march, the amt. you can claim exemption to the extent the interest will be applied on 31st march.
Please explore new provisions of tax savings from the tax-booklet. Also wait for the provisions in the ensuing budget which will be useful for you after the march.
