In India, Individual income tax is a progressive tax with three slabs.

Taxable income slab (Rs.) General Women Senior Citizen
Up to 1,50,000 Nil Nil Nil
1,50,000 – 2,00,000 10% 10%(above 1,75,000) Nil
2,00,001 – 2,50,000 20% 20% Nil
2,50,001 — 10,00,000 30% 30% 30%
10,00,00 upwards 30% 30% 30%**

** Surcharge of 10 % of the total tax liability should be applicable where the total income exceeds Rs 1,000,000.Presently all taxes in India are subject to an education cess, which is 3% of the total tax payable, and propose to increase education cess 3% to 4 %.

    There is no point in just increasing the edu. cess. This educational cess does not seem to be going to the education subsidy, but misused.

    It would be ideal if, the cess is directly paid by the assessee to Govt. and Govt. aided schools, and a certificate issued by the school, which can be claimed at the time of filing the returns. By this the public who pay the cess can atleast to some extent ensure that educational cess is going for the right purpose.

    I dont think you have seen my point. Just like donations which are paid and claimed as rebate under 80g, while filing tax returns with proper certificate from the recipient of the donations, similarly, the edu-cess can also be paid directly to Govt. / Govt. aided schools who can issue the necessary receipt, which can be submitted while filing the returns. This is not removal of edu-cess but channelising the cess and preventing mis-appropriation.

    I have not mentioned that edu-cess should not be there, but recommended a modification in payment process.
