There would be an increase in limit of deduction in respect of rent paid from Rs 24000 pa to Rs 60000 pa. Jaitley also said that service tax would be exempted for general insurance schemes under Niramayi Swasthya Bima Yojna. He said that to lessen burden on individuals with income not exceeding Rs. 5 lakh, a proposed ceiling of tax rebate under sec 87A from Rs 2000 to Rs 5000 has been announced. The minister also said that a limited tax compliance window from Jun 1 - Sep 30 will be given for declaring undisclosed income at 45% inclusive of surcharge and penalties. He further added that excise duty on tobacco products would be raised by 10-15%.
