There are two types of taxes in India: direct taxes and indirect taxes.
Direct taxes are taxes that are calculated and paid directly on your income, e.g. payroll taxes, etc. Income tax is a direct tax.
Indirect taxes are taxes that are not imposed on you directly on the purchase of goods or use of services, e.g. Buy a cell phone or eat regular food. A cell phone seller or fast food service provider charges you a tax and then puts it into a government account. A large number of indirect taxes are now covered by the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Anyone earning more than a certain amount is subject to income tax. Your income may come from salary, interest income from savings, income from mutual funds, real estate sales, or business or professional income. The income tax rate is determined at the beginning of the year in the estimates of the Union (in the Parliament of India). This tax paid or withheld is called income tax.
