    The special slabs for senior citizens over 60 and over 80 are incorporated in the schedule A which fixes the tax rates. But no such special slabs for senior citizens are mentioned in the new section 115BAC which has introduced new slabs. Does this mean that in the new regime seinior citizens get no concession?
