Agricultural extension services play a critical role in enhancing the productivity in the agricultural sector. In order to incentivise the business entities to provide better and effective agriculture extensive services, it is proposed to insert a new provision in the Income-tax Act to allow weighted deduction of 150% of the expenditure incurred on agricultural extension project. The agricultural extension project eligible for this weighted deduction shall be notified by the Board in accordance with the prescribed guidelines.

This amendment will take effect from 1st April, 2013 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2013-14  and subsequent assessment years.
