2. The Central Government has promulgated an Ordinance (No. 6 of 1987) on 19-9-1987. By this Ordinance, Part III of the First Schedule to the Finance Act, 1987 has been amended. Accordingly, where the income of a person chargeable to tax under the head “Salaries” exceeds Rs. 50,000, the amount of income-tax computed for the purpose of deduction of tax at source shall be increased by a surcharge for the purpose of the Union calculated at the rate of 5 per cent on the amount of income-tax so computed. An illustration is given in Annex I. These instructions may be brought to the notice of all Drawing and Disbursing Officers and State Undertakings under the control of the State Governments.
