You can save tax by proper planning.
Here are few suggestions :
Under 80C, instruments like PF, PPF(upto Rs. 70,000 only), LIC premiums, NSC, Child education tution fee, housing loan principal repaid (upto Rs. 20,000) etc. are eligible. Here, maximum limit is Rs. 1.0 Lakh for basket of instruments.
Under 80 F, you can get full waiver on tax by investing upto Rs. 20,000 in infrastructure bonds.
Take Housing Loan. Interest paid qualifies for tax waiver upto Rs. 1.5 L
Invest in markets for long term. Capital gain for equity transactions beyond 365 days is tax free.
