The impact of Delhi results will be seen on the budget
Income Tax exemption limit for the middle class may be extended by the Central Government
Jagran Bureau, New Delhi: The results of Delhi Assembly Elections may have its effects on the 2015-16 Budget. It is considered that the government is luring the people, especially those in the middle class, by extending their Income Tax exemption limits. This will reduce the Tax burden on common people and they will have more money for savings and expenditure.
For the time being, Income Tax is exempted for up to an annual income of Rupees Two and a Half Lacs. Our Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the previous budget meeting of 2014-15 has increased the Income tax exemption limit from 2 lacs to 2.5 lacs. Similarly he announced that the exemption limit for Senior citizens will be increased from 2.5 to 3 lacs. Sources say that the government is thinking of increasing the Income tax Exemption limit to three lacs. Apart from this, there may be an increase in the Tax limit for interest paid on home loans. For the time being, home loans have a tax exemption of Rupees Two Lacs per annum. Sources say that another reason for extending the Tax exemption limit is that the number of people who belong to the Low Income group are more, but the total Income tax received from them is less. So if the government increases the slab for Income Tax exemption, there will be not much loss in Revenue. Instead, most of the taxpayers will have a great relief. Sources say that considering the ‘Make in India’ campaign, the corporate industry may also enjoy certain tax benefits.
There may be a declaration in the measures that directly benefit the people.
Even earlier there was a voice raised in regard to Income Tax
In the revised Direct Tax Code Bill also it has been spoken to increase the Tax Exemption limit to three lacs. Similarly the Parliament’s Financial Affairs committee has also recommended extending the Income Tax exemption limit to three lacs.
