How much money one can save with this new proposed income tax slab 2017-18

I am considering a person with an annual income of rs 35 lakh to make this calculation understandable, if this proposed income tax slab is going to apply.

As per current Income Tax Slab Rate 2016-17

0 – 2.5 Lakh0
2.5 – 5 Lakh25,000 [10% tax]
5 – 10 Lakh1,00,000 [20% Tax]
10 Lakh +4,50,000 [30% tax]

Total Tax Paid : 5,75,000 [without considering any surcharge]

As per proposed Income tax Slab rate 2017-18

0 – 4 Lakh0
4 – 10 Lakh60,000 [10% tax]
10 – 20 Lakh2,00,000 [20% Tax]
30 Lakh +1,50,000 [30% tax]

Total Tax Paid : 4,10,000 [without considering any surcharge]. That means a saving of 1,65,000 which is simply massive. This is just a rough calculation to see how much one can save if the new income tax slab is going to implement. You can do your own calculation, as I don’t carry the responsibility of the accuracy of this calculation, it is just for education purpose.
