ITR 1 Eligibility and Applicability


There are certain eligible deductions under Chapter VI of the Income Tax Act such as deductions u/s 80C, 80D, 80E, 80G etc. which are reduced from the Gross Total Income to arrive at Net Income or Total Income. 

Even if the Total Income is less than 2.5 lacs during the year, ITR filing is mandatory if the same is after deductions under Chapter VI of Income Tax.

Old Tax Regime vs. New Tax Regime

Old Vs. New

(Applicability from Asst. Yr. 2024-25) onwards

The E-filing for the Asstt. Yr.2024-25 is starting soon. Let us understand the Old tax regime and new tax regime and what is the procedure to adopt the same. 

Old Tax Regime : 

For the Asstt. Yr.2024-25N, the default tax regime is New Tax regime. i.e. you will have to adopt and choose Old tax regime if you want to be taxed as per that regime. 

Under the Old tax regime, all the deductions such as standard deductions, deductions from house property, and deductions under chapter VIA of the Income Tax Act such as 80C, 80D, 80E, 80G, etc. will be available. However no such deductions will be there under New Tax regme except for few. 

The Tax slab under the Old tax regime will be as under : 

Income Range

Tax Rate

Upto Rs. 2.5 lacs
Rs. 2.5 lacs to 5 lacs
Rs. 5 Lacs to 10 Lacs
Above 10 Lacs

Plus there will be surcharges etc. as per the Act. 

New Tax Regime

From Asstt. Yr. 2024-25, there is a complete change in Tax Regimes. All taxpayers will be under New Tax Regime by default. i.e. they will have to choose old regime if they want to opt that. Otherwise by default, they will be under new tax regime and will file the ITR under that regime only.

Also there are many changes in the New Tax regime as compared to A.Yr. 2023.24. Under the New tax regime, the tax slabs and rate of tax are different. However, there are no deductions available such as  HRA, deductions from House property such as interest on loans, deductions under chapter VIA etc.

i.e. tax will have to be paid on total income without deductions. 

From Asstt. Yr. 2024-25, the Tax slab under the New tax regime is as under : 

Above Rs. 15 lacs
Rs. 12 lacs to Rs. 15 lacs
Rs. 9 lacs to Rs. 12 lacs
Rs. 6 lacs to Rs. 9 lacs
Rs. 3 lacs to Rs. 9 lacs
Upto Rs.3 lacs

Plus there will be surcharges etc. as per the Act. 

Which is Better: Old or New Tax Regime?

The decision to choose the old tax regime or the new tax regime depends on whether you have investments under Chapter VIA and other deductions such as house property interest etc. The same is also based on the fact as how much is your total income. 

The calculations have to be done under both regimes and then it can be decided as to which scheme is better. 

You can connect to our tax experts to help make this decision.

Which Regime is suitable for you?


For Salaried & other Income taxpayers, the option to choose old tax regime is available at the time of 

filing of ITR and in the ITR form only the option can be exercised. The option can be changed year to year i.e. it can be switched from old to new and vice versa every year depending on the benefits. 


However, in the case of taxpayers having a business income, the option has to be exercised before filing ITR through the separate filing of Form 10IE. The option once exercised can be changed once only. Also the option has to be exercised before the due date of filing of ITR otherwise the same will not be valid.


What is Form 10IE ?

  1. Is it mandatory to file form 10IE for salaried employees?

  No. Form 10IE for Salaried Employees is not required to be filed. There is an option in ITR-1 to select 

  old tax regime


  2. Is Form 10IE to be filed every year?

 No. Form 10IE is to be filed for taxpayers having business income only and that too once when they choose to opt old tax regime from A.Yr. 2024.25 and then the option can be continued unless the same has to be withdrawn once only. 


One important thing to note here is that the filing of Form 10IE should be done before the due date of filing 

of Income tax return i.e. 31st July in case of non-audited cases and 31st Oct. in case of audited cases.

If the option is exercised after the original due date of filing of ITR, the same will not be granted and the tax will be levied under the new tax regime only.
