The existing provisions of the section 80-IAC of the Act, inter alia, provides for a deduction of an amount equal to hundred percent of the profits and gains derived from an eligible business by an eligible start-up for three consecutive assessment years out of ten years, beginning from the year of incorporation, at the option of the assessees subject to the condition that,
(i) the total turnover of its business does not exceed one hundred crore rupees,
(ii) it is holding a certificate of eligible business from the Inter-Ministerial Board of Certification, and
(iii) it is incorporated on or after 1st day of April, 2016 but before 1st day of April 2023.

This amendment will take effect from the 1st day of April, 2023 and shall accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2023-24 and subsequent assessment years.
