Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday said that the middle class will benefit from the new tax regime as more money will be left in the hands of taxpayers by adopting this system.
After addressing the post-budget meeting of the RBI board, Sitharaman told reporters that it is unnecessary to encourage people to invest through government schemes. Instead, people should be given the opportunity to make individual decisions about their investments.
While presenting the budget for the financial year 2023-24 on February 1, Sitharaman made several announcements to make the new tax regime more attractive. In this, the announcement of no tax on annual income up to Rs 7 lakh is most important.
