    All media scream headlines as if the govt. has done some great relief to the “assessee” . the exeption limit and the conditions attached to it ensure that just a handful, i mean it, just a handful , fall in the “exemption” category.

    This notification is just an eyewash & hardly a handful of assesses may be benefited
    1. Any salaried employee bound to have some interest income from deposits & a very marginal interest of Rs.10000/- is fixed to ensure that very few assesses are left out
    2. For assessee with housing loan & loan interest benefit , this notification will not apply.
    3. If there is refund claim , again this notification will not apply.
    CBDT, by this notification tries to show as if they have made a remarkable relief / assessee friendly exemption, making sure while drafting the circular that no assessee will benefit out of it.
