Enhancement of the limit for payment of wealth tax

Under the existing provisions of section 3 of the Wealth-tax Act, wealth tax is charged every year in respect of net wealth, on
the valuation date, of every individual, Hindu undivided family and company at the rate of one per cent. of the amount by which
the net wealth exceeds fifteen lakh rupees. This limit was fixed in 1992.

With a view to providing for inflation-adjustment, it is proposed to raise the threshold limit for payment of wealth tax from
fifteen lakh rupees to thirty lakh rupees.
The proposed amendment will apply for the valuation of net wealth as on 31st March, 2010 and will, accordingly, apply in
relation to assessment year 2010-11 and subsequent years.
