The relief for the salaried class was short-lived as the government has revised tax deduction criteria for the segment on the demand of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
For the salaried class, the government has proposed a tax rate of 2.5% for income brackets of Rs50,000 to Rs100,000. For monthly income earners of Rs100,000 to Rs300,000, the proposed tax rate has been jacked up to 12.5%.
