Standard deduction refers to a straight reduction of salary income up to Rs.40,000/-. [Section 16(i)(ia)]

In budget 2018, India’s government has re-introduced the standard deduction for both salaried and pensioners.

To get the deduction, a taxpayer should be salaried or pensioner only.

Unlike other allowances, an employer is not required to submit any bill or expense vouchers for claiming the deduction.

The maximum deduction is Rs.40,000/- only. (for AY 2019-20)

If a taxpayer’s income is less than Rs.40,000/- under the head “Income From Salary” and his total income exceeds Rs.2,50,000/-. Than such taxpayer can claim his total salary income as standard deduction and file tax return.
