Deduction under section 80DDB can only be claimed either for individual himself or for his dependents. ‘Dependent’ includes spouse, children, brother, sister, parents. So any amount spent for medical treatment of a specified disease of a spouse can be claimed only when spouse is dependent on the individual. Filing individual return does not make the spouse status as independent.
