Enhancement of the limit for payment of wealth tax under the existing provisions of section 3 of the Wealth-tax Act, wealth tax is charged every year in respect of net wealth, on the valuation date, of every individual, Hindu undivided family and company at the rate of one per cent. of the amount by which the net wealth exceeds Rs.15.00 lakhs. This limit was fixed in 1992.

With a view to providing for inflation-adjustment, it is proposed to raise the threshold limit for payment of wealth tax from Rs.15.00 lakhs to Rs. 30.00 lakhs.

The proposed amendment will apply for the valuation of net wealth as on 31st March, 2010 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to assessment year 2010-11 and subsequent years.
