A person is turning to 65 years on 8th April 2010, will he be considered senior citizen for filling income tax return for the F.Y. 2010-2011 or will be treated as normal individual under the current income tax rules?
Yes. If date of birth is in between 1-4-1945 and 31-3-1946, then only he/she will become a Senior Citizen for this financial year 2010-11. That means every one who's date of birth is below 31-3-1946 are Senior citizens.
