The Union Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley in his Budget Speech ON 29/02/2016 in Lok Sabha proposed no change in the rate of personal Income-tax. He announced the tax proposals with no change in the rate of tax for companies in respect of the income earned in the financial year 2016-17 assessable in the assessment year 2017-18. However rebate under section 87A has been increased to 5000 from 2000/- earlier. But 87A relief is available only to persons having taxable income up to 500000/- (income after all deductions). So if your Taxable income is more than 5 lakh then no benefit is available to you. Further if your income is more than one crore then surcharge has been increased to 12 to 15%.
