Therefore, the government has categorized the taxpayers into different groups based on their income. These groups are referred to as Tax Slabs. Each group is charged tax at varying rates. Each year, the income tax slab rates are revised during the budget session. The provisions for income tax in India is governed by the laws of the Income Tax Act 1961. However, the budget proposals are required to be approved by the Parliament and requires presidential assent before becoming the law. Post that these will be applicable from April 1, 2018.
