In her Budget for 2020-21, presented on 1 February 2020, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman proposed a new personal tax regime under which those earning up to Rs 15 lakh in a year and opting to forgo deductions provided under various sections of the I-T Act would be able to pay income tax at lower rates.

The finance minister announced that individuals with an annual income between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 7.5 lakh would pay 10% tax, and those earning Rs 7.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh 15%. Under the old regime, with deductions, these individuals pay 20% income tax.

Similarly, people earning Rs 10 lakh to Rs 12.5 lakh pay 20 per cent, and those earning Rs 12.5 lakh to Rs 15 lakh pay 25% — against 30 per cent earlier.
