Yes.

The last date for revising the return in your case is 31.03.2019.

The amendment to section 139(5) reducing the time limit for revision of return, was made applicable from AY 2018-19. Since your case is related to AY 2017-18, you should be able to revise your return upto 31.03.2019 and claim the deduction of interest on house loan.

Section 139(5) deals with the revised return provision under the income Tax Act-1961. It reads as under:
(5) If any person, having furnished a return under sub-section (1) or sub-section (4), discovers any omission or any wrong statement therein, he may furnish a revised return at any time before the end of the relevant assessment year or before the completion of the assessment, whichever is earlier.
Section clearly provides that revised return can be filed any time before the end of the assessment year. For FY 2016-17 (AY 2017-18), the last permissible date for revising it was 31.03.2018. No revised return is now possible for FY 2016-17 return.
Earlier, there was a period of 2 years for revising the return of incme which is reduced to one year now and only reurn can be revised if it is within the same assessment year only.
