I am a salaried employee and have just registered to study BTech Civil. I am fully responsible for funding my studies as the company does not sponsor BTech and it is in line with my profession as l currently have a diploma in civil engineering, so l want to know whether l am eligible to getting any form of exemption from income tax because the fees are rather high.

Unfortunately not, this kind of study is not a deductible expense.
