Direct Tax Code Updates for 2011

On 26th August, 2010, Union Cabinet of India cleared the new Direct Tax Code (DTC). The new tax code proposes to raise the basic exemption limit from Rs 1.6 lacs to Rs 2 lacs. The new bill is expected to be introduced and discussed in Parliament on Monday, 30th August 2010.

New Expected Tax Slabs:
2 - 5 lacs : 10%
5 - 10 lacs : 20%
Above 10 lacs : 30%

The revised draft that came in June earlier this year, already exempted proposed tax on long-term savings. More picture will be cleared once it will be discussed in the parliament on Monday.
