Revised Income Tax - Budget 08

The new Income Tax slabs are:

Upto 150,000                 :    No tax (for women this is 180,000)
150,000 - 300,000 : 10%
300,000 - 500,000 : 20%
above 500,000 : 30%
For a person whose income is 5 lac, the current tax is Rs.99 K. As per the revised proposition, the tax will come down to 55 K. A straight reduction of 44% !! (This is without considering any investments).

For a person with around 2.5 lakhs per annum, earlier it was Rs. 32 K. Now, it will be Rs. 10 K only :) Lucky me :)
