    Some clarification is required on the following which is not clear to me in your post:

    1.Raising of limit of eligible premium on insurance policies-Sec,80C-Whether this is applicable only for 80U & 80DDB or for any normal individual taking LI policies.

    2.Additional deduction for interest on new home loan-Sec 80EE- Whether this additional deduction of Rs.100000 is one time deduction or additional to 1.50 lacs existing which we can claim every A.Y. from PY 13-14.

      1. It is applicable only a person with disability as referred in section 80U or 80DDB – not to other persons
      2. This is one time deduction only. e.g. suppose in case of Mr. A(provided all conditions are satisfied), interest amount is Rs. 275000 in PY13-14 and Rs. 235000 in PY 14-15, he will get deduction of Rs. 250000 in PY 13-14 and Rs. 150000 in PY 14-15.
