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.
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 old tax regime only.
