    Any individual or HUF (Hindu Undivided Family) who is a resident of India can claim deduction under Section 80DD, in respect of maintenance including medical treatment of a handicapped dependant, being a person with a disability.
    An individual who is a resident of India and has been certified as a person with a disability (disability or severe disability) by the medical authority can claim the tax benefit under Section 80U.
    An assessee may claim both deductions simultaneously where assessee is resident individual himself and is a person with disability under section 80U (Major or minor) and also has incurred an expenditure for the medical treatment of a dependent person with disability under section 80DD or has paid or deposited amount under any scheme framed in this behalf by the LIC or any other insurer, etc.
