    Is the tax credit of Rs.2000 introduced via this new sec. 87A applicable to senior citizens (between 60 and 80 years) as well?

    Dear @Shankar Guru

    Section 87A states that any person whose income is less than Rs. 5 Lakhs can claim Rebate under Section 87A. It does not distinguish between senior and non-senior citzen.

    Therefore Senior Citizens (between 60 and 80 years) can also claim this rebate
