Professionals in Delhi earning over Rs 30,000 per month may now have to pay a ‘professional tax’ of up to Rs. 200 under the new tax proposal presented by Municipal Corporation of Delhi in its budget for 2010-2011.

The tax will be imposed on all professions, trade callings and employments.

Proposed:

Salary and wage earners may have to pay PT as per the following structure:

Salary/Wage Earned (Monthly) PT
Between 30,000 and 40,000 100
Between 40,000 and 50,000 110
Between 50,000 and 60,000 120
Between 60,000 and 70,000 130
Between 70,000 and 80,000 140
Between 80,000 and 90,000 150
Between 90,000 and 100,000 160
Between 100,000 and 110,000 170
Between 110,000 and 120,000 180
Between 120,000 and 130,000 190
Above 130,000 200

Even those people who are living in Gurgaon and Noida but are working in Delhi will be liable to pay this tax. However as mandated by the Central Government, the tax will not exceed Rs. 2,500 per annum.
