Just writing all the possible deductions like this won't help. If you want to help, I suggest listing down the possible tax deductions based on income type. For example,
  • Salaried Employee
  • Freelancer
  • Businessmen/women
  • Senior Citizen
  • A person with Rental Income

Its good to write these. Also need to Mention All the Possible Tax Exemptions (in simple language). All the ways in which a Person receives money that fall under the Tax Exemption category(I guess Section 10 of Income Tax Act 1961).
This would also help a lot.

Isn't most of this on the old regime? Anything in the new regime?
It's all for Old Regime only, New Regime does not enjoy benefits of Sections 80 or Exemptions for Salaried employees such as LTA or any other.
The only benefit is for Standard Deduction 50K.
 
So a Person (salaried) has 50 lakh and he invested and now getting say 30k INR a month as pension premium in his bank account because of past investments. Then these are automatically exempted even in new scheme also right, the Policy exemptions

No that's not the case, Income earned from Investment is taxable in the year earned, subject to specific exemptions if any.
Here if the amount is received as income from ULIP covered in section 10, then only its exempted.
