How to calculate tax

Example 1: Let us take a case where the assessee's income is Rs. 2,10,000.

        According to the Income Tax Slab, the first 1,00,000 is not taxable.
        The next Rs. 50,000 is taxable @10%.
        10% of Rs. 50,000 is Rs. 5,000.
        The remaining Rs. 60,000 i.e. 2,10,000 - (1,00,000+50,000) is taxable @20%.
        20% of Rs. 60,000 is Rs. 12,000.
        Therefore, the net Income Tax Payable is Rs. 5,000 + Rs. 12,000 i.e. Rs. 17,000.

Example 2: Let us take a case where the assessee is women and whose taxable income is Rs. 2,40,000.

        According to the Income Tax Slab, the first 1,35,000 is not taxable.
        The next Rs. 15,000 is taxable @10%.
        10% of Rs. 15,000 is Rs. 1,500.
        The remaining Rs. 90,000 i.e. 2,40,000 - (1,35,000+15,000) is taxable @20%.
        20% of Rs. 90,000 is Rs. 18,000.
        Therefore, the net Income Tax Payable is Rs. 1,500 + Rs. 18,000 i.e. Rs. 19,500.

Example 3: Let us take a case where the assessee is senior citizen and whose taxable income is Rs. 2,90,000.

        The next Rs. 65,000 is taxable @20%.
        20% of Rs. 65,000 is Rs. 13,000.
        The next Rs. 40,000 i.e. 2,90,000 - (1,85,000+65,000) is taxable @30%.
        30% of Rs. 40,000 is Rs. 12,000.
        Therefore, the net Income Tax Payable is Rs. 13,000 + Rs. 12,000 i.e. Rs. 25,000.

(If the assesse claims any rebate/ exemption, the claimed amount will be deducted from his income with reference to the law
