India is the second largest population country in the world. But Sri Lanka is very less population country.
India population: 1.2 billion
Tax payment proportion: 2.77%
Sri Lanka population: 20 million
Tax payment proportion: 4.48%
Based on the both tax system we can say Sri Lankan income tax system is simple and not more burden to the people.
Indian tax rates and exemptions are differing for different age people. Therefore tax calculation is somewhat complex. Their tax rates also higher than the Sri Lanka.
Finally we can say there are no more differences between Sri Lankan and Indian Income tax practices, although Indian tax practices are somewhat complex than Sri Lanka.

Indian tax rates are higher but tax system is not simple Therefore tax rates should be increased by simplifying the tax system.
Different tax rates should be not based on age wise. It is more suitable based on Income level. Therefore income level should be categorized and rates, exemptions should be based on that.
In India tax payable rate is low. There should be a good mechanism for identifying the actual income of the people and should motivate them to pay tax voluntarily.
Income tax act should be amendment due to the current economic situations and requirements.
Lower tax income is mainly based on low income of the people. Therefore the income of the people should be increased. Based on that government policies should she modify.
