Give top priority to taxation issues: Experts to Narendra Modi
May, 19th 2014

The new government should accord priority to raising income tax slab, implementing Direct Taxes Code (DTC) and Goods and Services Tax (GST) with a view to give relief to common man as well as the industry, tax experts have suggested.

"The key expectation that a common man has from the new government is widening of tax slabs," said Divya Baweja Partner, Deloitte Haskins & Sells.

Baweja also pitched for raising the limit of deduction on home loans interest in case of self-occupied house property, from Rs 1.5 lakh per annum currently.

"One does expect some quick steps to address concerns on this front, particularly for international investors, who have been badly impacted by a very aggressive approach, and equally aggressive interpretations," Dalal said.

The GST, which proposes to subsume all indirect taxes like excise and service tax, has been opposed by several states including BJP ruled Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. A constitutional amendment bill to introduce GST in the country is pending in Parliament since 2010.
