The government has given various benefits under different heads of income as well as under deduction sections of the income tax act. So, even if any person is earning Rs. 10,00,000/- p.a. he need not to pay any income tax to the government.

However, if the total income of the individual is increased even by Rs. 1/- above Rs. 5,00,000/- then benefit of section 87A is not available to individual then in that case the tax amount will be increased by Rs. 12,500/- as the benefit under section 87A is not available to the individual. Moreover, the above-mentioned benefits are available to only Individual and HUF. Partnership firm or company will not be getting such benefits of slab rate or rebate or deduction under chapter VI as mentioned above.
