Budget 2010 would help the common man save up to approximately Rs 50,000 per annum. The Budget also offered an annual deduction of Rs 20,000 towards an investment in long-term infrastructure bonds, on top of whatever 80C deduction a taxpayer might have taken.

If you earn up to Rs 3 lakhs per annum, then there will be no change in your tax liability. If you earn between Rs 3 lakhs to Rs 5 lakhs, you can now save up to Rs 20,000 per annum. And, if you earn between Rs 5 lakhs to Rs 8 lakhs, you can now save between Rs 20,000 to Rs 50,000.

The above amounts are substantial enough and are expected to help promote higher consumption which will further boost our economy. Whether these savings are used to buy big-ticket items such as electronics or white goods, or spent towards daily consumption, or used for investing towards meeting financial goals, the common man will find many ways to take advantage of this tax break.
