Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a revised new income tax regime effective April 1, 2023, which will also from now on be the default tax regime. The new income tax regime has new income tax slabs for 2023-24 which offer lower tax rates but with the caveat of not being able to avail many exemptions and deductions.
Common exemptions claimed by salaried and individual taxpayers in the old tax regime such as benefits under Section 80C, Section 80D, House Rent Allowance (HRA), Leave Travel Allowance (LTA), interest on housing loan, Section 80TTA etc. are not allowed under the new income tax regime. Only a standard deduction of Rs 50,000 has been included from this year.
