    This will not give so great relief to the assessees who is income is less than 10L. Tthe govt didn`t review the prices of the essential commodities gone higher than himalaya, which is heavily impacting poor and poor middile class working community. As like minimum wages, the govt should recommend a minimum increment norms to all private and corporates to help the working group.

  5. jay says:

    This notification is just an eyewash & hardly a handful of assesses may be benefited
    will not apply.
    CBDT, by this notification tries to show as if they have made a remarkable relief / assessee friendly exemption, making sure while drafting the circular that no assessee will benefit out of it.
