Donation Deductions and section 80GGC & 80GGB of Income Tax Act, 1961.

Donation regarding Section 80GGB to Polication parties are exempt from Income Tax, such question are still pending with Assessee.  Thus the some clarification are follows:

If you have contributed any amount to a recognised political party, you are eligible to claim a tax deduction ranging from 50 percent to 100 percent of the amount under Section 80GGC for individuals and Section 80GGB for corporate organisations. One can contribute up to 10 percent of one’s gross total income to a political party.

These deductions, along with the common ones like medical benefits, HRA, home loan EMIs, etc. can help you save a considerable amount of tax every year.

Deduction in respect of contributions given by any person to political parties.
80GGC. In computing the total income of an assessee, being any person, except local authority and every artificial juridical person wholly or partly funded by the Government, there shall be deducted any amount of contribution made by him, in the previous year, to a political party or an electoral trust.

For the purposes of sections 80GGB and 80GGC, “political party” means a political party registered under section 29A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 (43 of 1951)

Deduction in respect of contributions given by companies to political parties.
80GGB. In computing the total income of an assessee, being an Indian company, there shall be deducted any sum contributed by it, in the previous year to any political party or an electoral trust.

For the removal of doubts, it is hereby declared that for the purposes of this section, the word “contribute”, with its grammatical variation, has the meaning assigned to it under section 293A of the Companies Act, 1956 (1 of 1956).
