Finance Ministry working on Direct Taxes Code Bill, may bring it in Winter session
November, 21st 2013

Finance Ministry today said it finalising the official amendments to Direct Taxes Code (DTC) Bill so that it could be taken up in the Winter Session of Parliament beginning December 5.

"We are working on the DTC Bill and want to bring it as soon as possible," Revenue Secretary Sumit Bose told reporters on the sidelines of a CII summit here.

The Finance Ministry is currently working on the official amendments to the DTC Bill which was tabled in Parliament earlier.

Meanwhile, a senior Finance Ministry official said that the amendments to the Bill would be placed before the Cabinet shortly for approval.

"The Finance Ministry wants to bring it in the Winter session of Parliament," the official added.

Among other things, the DTC Bill proposes a higher income tax rate of 35 per cent.

While the Bill proposes to keep exemption limit at Rs. 2 lakh for individual tax unchanged, it proposes to introduce a fourth slab of 35 per cent tax rate for those with an annual income of over Rs. 10 crore.

It also proposes to levy a 10 per cent tax on dividend income of more than Rs. 1 crore.

Besides, Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) may be levied on book profit and not on gross assets, sources said.

Further, the Securities Transaction Tax (STT) is likely to be retained, though the Standing Committee on Finance, which had scrutinised the bill, had suggested abolition of the levy.

At present, tax is levied on income between Rs. 2-5 lakh at 10 per cent, Rs. 5-10 lakh at 20 per cent, and above Rs. 10 lakh at 30 per cent. Further, those earning more than Rs. 1 crore have to pay a surcharge of 10 per cent.

The Finance Ministry, according to sources, had accepted most of the recommendations of the Standing Committee.

On whether there is a scope for lowering the rate of corporate tax, the official said it is not possible in India.

The DTC bill, which aims to rationalise tax rates to bring more people and companies under the tax net and overhaul the I-T Act of 1961, was introduced in Parliament in 2010.
