contemplating to hike personal tax exemption limit and tweak the tax slabs according to sources The proposals before the ministry is to hike the tax exemption limit from the existing Rs 25 lakh per annum to at least Rs 3 lakh if not 5 lakh they said Besides the tinkering of tax slab is also being actively considered by the ministry to give substantial relief to middle-income group especially the salaried class to help them tide over the impact of retail inflation which has started inching up In the last Budget Finance Minister Arun Jaitley left the slabs unchanged but gave marginal relief to small tax payer by reducing the rate from 10 percent to 5 percent for individuals having annual income between Rs 25-5 lakh Representational image Reuters In the next Budget to be unveiled on 1 February the government could lower tax rate by 10 percent on income between 5-10 lakh levy 20 percent rate for income between Rs 10-20 lakh and 30 percent for income beyond Rs 20 lakh At present there is no tax slab for income between 10-20 lakh "Considering the steep rise in cost of living due to inflation it is suggested that basic limit for exemption and other income slabs should be enhanced to give benefit to low income group The income trigger for peak rate in other countries is significantly higher" industry chamber CII said in its pre-Budget memorandum to the finance ministry Although the industry chambers want the government to reduce peak tax slab to 25 percent it is unlikely that the ministry will agree to that due to pressure on fiscal deficit The subdued indirect tax collection following roll out of Goods and Services Tax from 1 July last year has put pressure on the fiscal deficit which has been pegged at 32 percent of the GDP for 2017-18 The government recently raised borrowing target by additional Rs 50000 crore for the current fiscal to meet the shortfall According to industry body Ficci there is a likelihood that demonetisation effects may linger on for some more months and hence there is a need to further boost demand and therefore the government should consider revision of income tax slabs by raising the income level on which peak tax rate would trigger "This would improve purchasing power and create additional demand For individual taxpayers 30 percent tax rate should be applicable only if the income is above Rs 20 lakh Additionally interest rates should be lowered to enable affordable finance for conducting business operation and expansion" it said Among other things chambers have suggested re-introduction of the standard deduction for salaried employees to at least Rs 1 lakh to ease the tax burden of them and keeping in mind the rate of inflation and purchasing power of the salaried individual which is dependent on salary available for disbursement Standard deduction which was available to the salaried individuals on their taxable income was abolished with effect from assessment year 2006-07 Written by Express News Service |
