A programmer working independently can comfortably extend online support to domainers for five hours a day, charging not less than ₹2000 hourly per terminal. Healthfully working five hours a day for five days in a week, he works for only 1300 hours in a year. Therefore he would be making only ₹2600000 per annum. If he becomes very popular and starts charging more than ₹2000 hourly per terminal, he would be making much more.
Thus a programmer in India, not receiving more than ₹5000000 per annum, should take the route of presumptive taxation under section 44 ADA showing only 50% of total receipts as net profit without any accounts or deductions involved.
