From my understanding, for salaried person we have to fill ITR1 form.
In my form-16, for total taxable income, home loan interest is get deducted from head of salries column

and Taxable income will get retrieved.

Example from form-16:

6. Income chargeable under the head \'salaries\' (3-5) = 250000
7. Add: Any other income reported by the employee
LESS: INCOME / LOSS FROM HOUSE PROPERTY = -150000

8. Gross Total Income (6 7) = 100000

Since I have the Home Loan interest, which form (ITR1 or ITR2) should I fill?
Or do I need to fill both the forms?

I think, I have to fill ITR2 only. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Dear Friends,
The Income tax dept. has notified the new I.T forms ITR 1 AND ITR 2for the assessment year 2009-10. the forms are available for downloading in the I.T department's website

http://www.incometaxindia.gov.in/download_all.asp
You will get confused if you go strictly by the matter given under the column heading. Just ignore it and download the form you need.
ITR 1 is For Individuals having Income from Salary/ Pension/ family pension & Interest , whereas
For Individuals and HUFs not having Income from Business or Profession
ITR2 will aplly.
There is no major change from last year's forms except that in ITR2 in the case of short term capital gains under section 111A the rate of taxation has been changed to 15%

The latest Form No. 16 does not require the details of exemption under Section 24 such as interest on HBA. The Income chargeable under the Head ‘salaries’ should be the figure arrived after deducing the interest on HBA /loss from house property from the Gross salary. Coloumn No 1 of ITR-1 will also accordingly exclude the interest on HBA. A salaried individual will file only ITR-1.
