|Yes you are not required to file the tax return as your income is less than Rs. 5,00,00 and also interest less than Rs. 10,000.|
But at the same time the income should be only from salary and the interest only from savings bank interest and no other interest.
For details refer the to the article Exemption from filing ITR. In case any of the conditions mentioned in the article is not fulfilled then return will have to be filed. If required to file the return you can file the same up to 31st August, 2012, as the last date for e-filing has been extended due to heavy rush for e-filing which led to crashing of the Income Tax site.
In addition you can refer to Due date of filing return for Financial Year 2011-12

Tax will be deducted if your income is greater than 180000Rs per annum(190000Pa in case of Women).
It is not mandatory to fill the returns if your income is less than 5 lacks.
I will suggest you to fill the returns. Because while giving the loans bank will ask if you have filled tax return.
Also if you have LIC insurence policy or any loan you can get some amount refunded corresponding to amount of LIC, Interest on your Loan amount. So better to fill the income tax returns with proper records even if your annual income is less than 5 lacks

|In the above responses, I find one of the most important point missing. Correct me if I am mistaken.|
As stated above, if the income is less than Rs. 5,00,000/- and the income includes only (1) Salary and/or (2) Income from other sources - Interest from Savings a/c, then an individual is not required to file income tax return. But, one has to ensure that the total tax payable on the total income has been properly deducted from the source.
Assuming that Mr. A's (Male Individual) salary income is Rs. 4,00,000/- (taxable Salary income) and income from savings a/c is Rs. 8,000, then tax payabale + surcharge on the total income will be Rs. 22,800/- + 684/- = 23,484/-. Suppose Mr. A did not inform his employer (Deductor) about his interest income, then his deductor will be aware of his salary income only, and accordingly deduct tax on Rs. 4,00,000/- which would be Rs. 22,000/- + 660/-= 22,660/- (tax + surcharge). Hence, Mr. A's tax liability of Rs. 824/- is not discharged. Under such circumstanc, the person will be required to deposit the tax as self assessment tax in challan no. 280 and file the Income Tax Return.

|An individual need not file a Income Tax Return if his total Income is less than 5 lakh rupees by way of Salary and Bank Deposit Interest provided your employer and Bank has deducted TDS from your salary Income and Interest income respectively. If you have any refund to be claimed by way of excess TDS deducted, you have to file the return claiming refund amount|
