Answer:Surcharge: In case income is more than ₹ 1 crore, the surcharge is applicable @ 12% of the income tax amount. Health and Education Cess: “Education Cess” and “Secondary and Higher Education Cess” will be replaced by “Health and Education Cess” at the rate of 4%, on the amount of tax computed, inclusive of surcharge.
