New IncomeTax Regime 


The New Income tax regime is optional for taxpayers and there is quite a difference between both Old and New Income tax rates for particular income which are:

  • Rs 5 Lakh: No Tax
  • Rs 5 to 7.5 Lakh: 10%
  • Rs 7.5 to 10 Lakh: 15% tax
  • Rs 10 to 12.5 Lakh: 20% tax  
  • Rs 12.5 Lakh to 15 Lakh: 25% tax
  •  Rs 15 Lakh: 30% tax 

70 deductions are removed in a new tax regime which taxpayer cannot claim as a deduction but the Standard deduction of Rs 50,000 is allowed in both cases or slabs.
