New Delhi: In a letter addressed to the Union Finance Minister, Shiv Sena, ahead of the interim budget, wrote it wants the central government to exempt those earning up to Rs 8 lakhs a year from paying income tax.

"10 per cent reservation has been given to upper caste people. Those who earn less than or equal to eight lakh per annum can apply for this. So, we feel people who earn Rs 8,00,000 per annum are poor. Therefore, the limit of income tax should be eight lakhs. Those who earn up to eight lakhs per annum should be refrained from paying tax. This is our demand," read the letter accessed by News18.

The Parliament recently passed the Constitution (124th Amendment) Bill, 2019 to grant 10 per cent reservation in education and government jobs to economically weaker section individuals belonging to the general category, across religions.
