Budget 2018 does not impact much your In-hand Salary

The Finance Minister, Mr. Arun Jaitley, has presented a give-and-take Budget proposals for salaried persons. A Standard Deduction of upto Rs 40,000 is proposed from salary income. This additional deduction is givenin lieu of withdrawal of exemption of Transport Allowance of Rs. 19,200 per annum and Medical Reimbursement of Rs. 15,000 per annum.

Hence, the net benefit for the employees already claiming deduction for transport allowance and medical reimbursement will be just Rs. 5,800 (Rs. 40,000- Rs. 19,200- Rs. 15,000).

If your annual CTC is Rs. 12,00,000, the impact of this proposed amendment on your take home salary is explained as under:
