New Tax Regime (New Slabs vs Old): How much will you save
The Finance Minister said that the revised tax slabs under New Regime will provide a major relief to all taxpayers. “An individual with an annual income of Rs 9 lakh will be required to pay only Rs 45,000. This is only 5 per cent of his or her income. It is a reduction of 25 per cent on what he or she is required to pay now, ie, Rs 60,000. Similarly, an individual with an income of Rs 15 lakh would be required to pay only Rs 1.5 lakh or 10 per cent of his or her income, a reduction of 20 per cent from the existing liability of Rs 1,87,500,” she said.

The Finance Minister also proposed to make the New tax Regime the default tax regime. However, taxpayers will have the option to file ITR under the Old Regime and avail of the benefits of various relaxations.
Experts say that the decision to reduce tax slabs and increase the tax rebate under the New Regime will put more money in the hands of taxpayers.
“The relief has been given, with a nudge to shift to the New Tax Regime. This will certainly put more money in the hands of consumers and investors. The Old Tax Regime gives concessions based on investments and insurance and tax is levied after giving effect to these deductions. This used to direct the savings to avenues favoured by the policymakers. In my opinion, this will not adversely affect the flow into investments. The investors have evolved and are committing to goal-based investments on their own. The limits under the Old Tax Regime were already getting fulfilled due to housing loan repayment and PF contributions. The adoption of self-propelled investments is evident from continuous monthly flows of over 12,000 crores into mutual funds,” says Bharat Phatak, Director of Scripbox.
