Additional surcharge on Rs 1 crore income to increase tax outflow by almost Rs 1 lakh

The Finance Minister has increased the surcharge on income above Rs 1 crore, from 12% to 15%. This means that the super-rich would pay approximately 1% more income tax as their effective tax rate increases from 34.6% to 35.6%. This will result in an additional cash outflow of approximately Rs 1 lakh per annum(see box).
