Under the new tax regime, the tax rates are significantly lower, though the benefit of various exemptions and deductions (other than standard deduction of Rs. 50,000 from salary and Rs. 15,000 from family pension) is not available, as in the old regime, the Finance Ministry added. 

Eligible persons without any business income will have the option to choose the regime for each financial year. Therefore, they can choose the new tax regime in one financial year and the old tax regime in another year and vice-versa, the Finance Ministry said in a statement.  (Maxim News)
