E filing above 5 lacs

I differ with the definition given to Total Income as Gross Total Income less deductions Under Chapter VIA.

Total income = Gross Income.

(Refer Sec.2 (45) and Sec. 5.

As per Rule 12(3), clause(a)
A person (other than a company and a person required to furnish the return in Form ITR-7) if his or its total income, or the total income in respect of which he is or it is assessable under the Act during the previous year, exceeds five lakh rupees, shall furnish the return for the assessment year 2013-14 and subsequent assessment years electronically under digital signature or transmitting the data in the return electronically and thereafter submitting the verification of the return in Form ITR-V.

When the CBDT vide its earlier notification had exempted salaried employees having total income upto 5 lakhs from the requirement of filing return of income for assessment year 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively, it was clarified by the department in its FAQ to the effect that Total Income for the purpose of exempting an assessee will be Income after deductions under Chapter VIA of Income tax Act.
Refer Example 4 of the FAQ:

A taxpayer having salary income of Rs.5,50,000, interest income from savings bank account of Rs.8,000 (which has been reported to the employer and tax has been deducted thereon), and who has claimed deduction of Rs.70,000 under section 80C (on account of certain payments/investments/savings) would also be eligible under the Scheme.
Hence, I presumed, total income as income after deduction.
