Central Government is planning to raise the Income Tax exemption slab to Rs. 5 Lakhs

According to information from the Finance Ministry, the Government is giving serious thoughts about raising the income tax exemption slab from the current Rs. 2 lakhs to Rs. 5 lakhs. The information adds that Modi is planning to make the raising of income tax exemption slab from Rs. 2 lakhs to Rs. 5 lakhs as one of the achievements of his Government’s tenure. The Finance Ministry has, it seems, sought a report regarding this from the Income Tax department. A number of other financial incentives are also likely to be announced by the Modi Government.

The Government has also planned to raise the tax exemption on housing loans. According to sources from the Finance Ministry, there are also plans to increase the tax exemption on medical insurance premium.
The reports add that Modi is trying to impress as many people as possible with the very first budget that his government is going to present. The demand for raising income tax exemption level to Rs. 5 lakhs has been a long-standing one. Economists and experts suggest that the slab be fixed in accordance to the current price and inflation levels.

Gross Salary for Newly Appointed Postal Assistant / Sorting Assistant / PA SBCO

Author of blog does not accepts any responsibility in relation to the accuracy, completeness, usefulness or otherwise, of the contents.

A request was made by a candidate regarding salary structure of newly appointed  Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistant (PA/SA) and the details are as follows

B.P = Basic Pay
D.A = Dearness Allowance
H.R.A = House Rent Allowance
T.A = Transport Allowance

The above are used for calculating the total salary of a Postal/Sorting Assistant
PA/SA’s are included in the Pay Scale of  5200-20200  with a grade pay of 2400.


1. Basic Pay (BP) = 9910 (7510 + 2400)

2. Dearness Allowance = Dearness Allowance (DA) is given by the Government in every six months ie, in January and July every year. From Jan 2013, the Dearness Allowance is 80%. Thus the present DA is 80% of 9910 which works out to 7928.

3)    House Rent Allowance (HRA) = HRA is calculated based on the city where you are working. In India the cities have been classified into three categories as “X”, “Y” and “Z”.
