Three long term infrastructure bonds were eligible - those of the Life Insurance Corporation (LIC), Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation (IDFC) and IFCI. This deduction was over and above the regular 80C and 80D deductions available respectively for tax-saving investments and medical insurance.
