Online GST Certification Course by TaxGuru & MSME- Click here to Join

At present income of minors included in the hands of parents is exempt to the extent of Rs.1,500/- for each minor. The average expenditure to meet cost of a minor’s education/health/living expenses which has gone up considerably in recent years, limit of
Rs.1,500/- fixed is woefully inadequate.

It is suggested that this should be raised to at least Rs.10,000/- for each minor child.

One response to “Increase Minor Income Exemption Limit to Rs. 10000 – ICAI”

  1. sathish reddy says:

    No restriction in no:of children at present

  2. Adv Jignesh P. Shah says:

    Even Rs.10,000/- per Child is VERY LESS in Cities like Mumbai !
    So, Rs.20,000/- per Child will be Reasonable ( Total Rs. 40,000/- for Two Children )!
    Or else, in Metropolitan Cities, Rs. 20,000/- per Child & Other places, Rs. 10,000/- per Child !
