So, with this years budget Pranab da has not done anything radical. Just a little tweaks here and there. Now no-tax limit has been increased from 1.8 lakhs to 2 lakhs for Men. Which equated them to the fairer sex. So with no change in initial no tax  limit for women, Finance Ministry doesn’t seek any tax for first 2 lakh of income.

Further 20% tax bracket has been increased from 8 Lakhs to 10 Lakhs for each individual tax paying group. This effectively gives 20,000 more in hands of tax payers with income more than 10 Lakhs.

Overall, there is nothing much in this year’s budget from income tax perspective. People can be happy with a little bit extra money in hand but it will be taken away in form of service tax increase and inflation.
