Who all can Use this e-calculator?

Taxpayers below the normal age group of 60 years, senior citizens between the age group of 60 and 79 years and super senior citizens who are above the age group of 79 years can enter their income from all the sources, the eligible exemptions and deductions in order to have an estimate of their total taxable income on continuing with the old regime and switching to the new one.

This e-calculator takes into account the available deductions and exemptions under the purview of the new tax regime, as extracted from the Budget memorandum 2020.

The new income tax regime as proposed by the Financial Minister removes some 70 available exemptions in the old regime and keeps 50 untouched. And the tax slab remains the same a 5% for those earning from ₹2.5 lakh to ₹5 lakh, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25 % on addition of every ₹2.5 lakh. And for the income group above ₹15 lakh, the new tax slab remains at 30%.

The current tax regime permits a standard deduction of ₹50,000 and ₹1.5 lakh in saving schemes. The existing tax slab is 5% for income ranging from ₹2.5 lakh to ₹5 lakh, 20% for ₹5 to ₹10 lakh and 30% for income above that.
