1. Under Sec.80 U of the Income Tax Act certain deductions are available to the physically handicapped resident persons.

A resident individual who is totally blind or suffers from any physical disability is entitled to a deduction of Rs.40,000, in computing his taxable income.

For the purposes of this section, the person claiming the tax deduction should be a resident person who is so disabled, so as to reduce his capacity for normal work. A certificate for this purpose has to be produced from a physician or surgeon to the Assessing Officer at the time of the first assessment.

2. Deduction in respect of maintenance including medical treatment of handicapped dependent (Sec.80 DD):
