No change in exempted children education allowance which is Rs. 100 per month per child upto 2 childs, at present !!! Can we get admission of our childs to school at just Rs. 150 per month?

Senior citizens to get higher IT deduction limit of Rs. 2.5 lakh. Entitlement age reduced to 60 from current 65

Exemption towards Hostel allowance is upto Rs. 300 per month per child for maximum 2 childs! Can anyone get a hostel admission for just Rs. 300 per month?


No change in formula set for HRA emeption calculation where maximum exemption is limited to 40% of basic salary+DA, even if you are residing in Bangalore or Hyderabad. And further its limited to Rent Paid minus 10% of Basic Salary+DA. WHY?

Entertainment allowance is available to Only government employees, others don’t need entertainment!!!


No Standard deduction for salaries!!!


No depreciation allowable for personal vehicle for attaining duties.


No demolition of professional tax which is an additional burden for entry level employees.


Too Complicated taxation for salaried employees. One should be a mathematician to compute income from salary if he is not a chartered accountant !!!

Government thinks that salaried people don’t need to eat, meet and greet. They are just like robot, they are in-human and do not have any expenditure except as provided (within the limit) to earn the income! No inflation affect to salaried employees! How insane is this?
