Such a big confusion in answers given. Can we get some light into facts. some link or copy paste of present act?

Mr.Sandeep, u say 33.33% applies to computers used in all companies ( as per Co's Act), so dep would be provided in books as per Co's act and while caluculating tax, dep allowed as per IT act and difference would be shown as DTA/DTL . So what is the rate as per IT act on computers for Companies?

In case of non companies depreciation rate would remain as specified in IT Act.  ie. 60%??is this true?If yes then by WDV ?

What about these rates below????----------

Depreciation rate as per Companies Act.

WDV-40%

SLM-16.21%????

 

Clarity needed !!
