(a) for the words “five hundred thousand rupees”, the words “three hundred fifty thousand rupees” shall be substituted;

(b) for the words “five thousand rupees” [as substituted by section 46 of the Finance Act, 2016 (28 of 2016)], the words “two thousand five hundred rupees” shall be substituted.



Notes on Clauses:

Clause 38 of the Bill seeks to amend section 87A of the Income-tax Act relating to rebate of income-tax in case of certain individuals.

The existing provisions contained in the said section provide that an assessee, being an individual resident in India, whose total income does not exceed five hundred thousand rupees, shall be entitled to a deduction, from the amount of income-tax (as computed before allowing the deductions under Chapter VIII) on his total income with which he is chargeable for any assessment year, of an amount equal to one hundred per cent. of such income-tax or an amount of five thousand rupees, whichever is less.

It is proposed to amend the said section so as to provide that the deduction under the said section shall be allowed to an assessee, being an individual resident in India, whose total income does not exceed three hundred fifty thousand rupees, upto hundred percent. of income chargeable for any assessment year or two thousand five hundred rupees, whichever is less.

This amendment will take effect, from 1st April, 2018 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2018-2019 and subsequent years.
