  1. R Swaminathan says:

    A small correction in the figures shown in the flow chart. The surcharge is to be levied @33% of tax which would be Rs.9.9 (or Rs. 10 approximately) and not Rs.12 as shown in the chart. As per the bill, surcharge is to be calculated only on tax and not on penalty. Even otherwise the announcements have been made that the tax liability will be 50% in all (ie. 30+9.9+10 = 49.9).

  2. amit agarwal says:

    There is slight mistake in the calculation. Subject to correction the same should be as follows:

    Surcharge @ 33% of 30 per cent tax on undisclosed income of Rs.100 will come to Rs.10. Thus, Cash in hand will be Rs. 25 [Rs.100 – (Rs.50 plus Rs.25 )] after making payment of total tax of Rs.50 (Tax @ Rs.30 plus Penalty @ Rs.10 plus Surcharge @ Rs.10) and Rs. 25 being deposited in the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Deposit Scheme.
