ITR Deductions Under New Tax Regime

CS Lalit Rajput , Last updated: 23 March 2024  

India introduced a new income tax regime in the Union Budget 2023. The new income tax regime in India is basically a simplified tax system.

The new tax regime offers lower tax rates but fewer deductions compared to the old regime. This has to be noted that, the new regime has now become the default option for all the taxpayers, meaning taxpayers who do not actively choose either regime will automatically be placed under the new one.
