Your Income Tax Slab Rate May Go Through A Radical Change

Roshni Agarwal

As per the panel recommendation on Direct Tax Code, your personal income tax slab rate can go a overhaul.

It has been proposed as though:

Income slab Income tax rate
0 to Rs. 2.5 lakh No tax
Rs.5 lakh- Rs 10 lakh 10%
Rs. 10 lakh to Rs. 20 lakh 20%
> Rs. 20 lakh and up to Rs. 2 crore 30%

Present slab rate

Income slab Income tax rate
Rs. 2.5 lakh- Rs. 5 lakh 5%
Rs. 5 lakh to Rs. 10 lakh 20%
> Rs. 10 lakh 30%

There will be a rebate for income upto Rs. 5 lakh as per the announcement made in Interim Budget 2019.. This effectively means an annual income of up to Rs 5 lakh will attract zero tax.
