simple, take income returned (including previously used 89(1) relief and income with arrears spread over various years.
in case owing to income/slab rate being lower his taxability in that year is lower than taxing it in the current year (eg. current year his income may be in 30% slab. earlier with arrears spread out he may fall in 20% slab. (if such difference in tax rate does not occur or if spread out arrears increases tax slab, do not claim 89(1) relief.

Sir,every year there are changes in Financial Budget, if one try to take income returned as a base won't help one has to go by step in calculating the actual income returned in each assessment year. SIR.
