FinMin against raising income-tax exemption limit to Rs 3 lakh
April, 03rd 2014

The Finance Ministry has rejected a Parliamentary Standing Committee’s recommendation to raise the income-tax exemption limit to Rs 3 lakh and to adjust other slabs saying that it will lead to an annual loss of Rs 60,000 crore to the exchequer.

It has however decided to reduce the age for tax exemption for senior citizens to 60 years from 65 years.

The Committee headed by senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha had proposed no tax on income of up to Rs 3 lakh per annum; 10 per cent for Rs 3-10 lakh; 20 per cent, for Rs 10-20 lakh and 30 per cent on annual income beyond Rs 20 lakh.

“The recommendation is not acceptable as it will result in huge revenue loss. The total revenue loss on account of recommended changes in PIT slabs and removal of cess works out to Rs 60,000 crore approximately,” said the proposed Direct Taxes Code -- 2013, released today.

The Finance Ministry said the recommendations of the Committee “were not in harmony” with the broad taxation policy and have not been incorporated in the revised Code

As per the current structure, there is no tax on income of up to Rs 2 lakh per annum; 10 per cent on Rs 2-5 lakh; 20 per cent on Rs 5-10 lakh and 30 per cent on income beyond Rs 10 lakh.

In his Budget speech, Finance Minister P Chidambaram had said that revised DTC was ready and will be placed in public domain for discussions. It proposes 35 per cent tax rate for individual and Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) having income exceeding Rs 10 crore.

“With a view to maintaining overall progessivity in levy of income tax, the revised Code provides for a fourth slab for individuals, HUFs and artificial judicial persons. In their case if the total income exceeds Rs 10 crore, it is proposed to be taxed at the rate of 35 per cent,” the ministry added.
