Thus, we can Say :-
1.     The basic exemption limit for individuals (i.e. below 60 years of age) is Rs 2.50 lakhs
2.     The basic exemption limit for Senior citizens (60 years to below 80 years) is : Rs 3.00 lakhs
3.     The basic exemption limit for Very Senior Citizens(80 years and above)  is Rs3.50 lakhs
* A tax rebate of Rs 2,000 from tax calculated will be available for people having an annual income upto Rs 5 lakh.   However, this benefit of Rs2,000 tax credit will not be available if you cross the income range of Rs 5 lakh.  Thus we can say that tax payable in 10% slab will be maximum Rs23,000 (taking into account Rs 2000 tax credit), but for people who fall in income range of Rs5 lakh and above, the tax will be Rs25,000 + 20% tax on income above Rs 5 lakh;

The education cess to continue at 3 percent.
