There is a relief for Tax Payers in the bracket of 2 lakhs to 5 lakhs. A tax credit of Rs. 2000 to every person with total taxable income up to Rs.5 lakhs. In simple sense, one can say that those with a tax liability of up to Rs 2,000 will not have to pay any tax. You will have to Pay less if you fall in the 10 % tax bracket. As per government data, 1.8 crores people fall under this tax bracket and all of them will have to pay a less amount tax of Rs. 2000/- from the total tax amount.

Tax rebate of Rs.2000 u/s 87A, is applicable for F.Y. 2013-14 only, so in case your income as mentioned falls below Rs.5 lakh.
Practical example applicable to you will be as follows:
a) Salary Income: Rs. 485000
b) Deduction u/s 80C: Rs.100000
c) (a)-(b)Net Taxable income: Rs. 385000
d) Tax on Rs.385000 will be Rs.19055*
a) Taxable income = Rs. 385000
b) Less: Basic exemption limit: 200000
c) Net taxable salary = Rs. 185000
Tax @ 10% = 10%(185000) = Rs.18500
Education cess @ 3% on 18500 = Rs.555
Total tax = 18500+555 = Rs.19055
Now the rebate of Rs.2000 u/s 87A will be applied here and the balance tax will be deposited i.e.
Rs.19055 - Rs.2000 = Rs. 17055
Actual tax liability after providing for the rebate will be Rs.17055.
Since you are a salaried employee hence the employer will deduct the actual applicable after providing for the benefit of above section. Although you can verify the same with accounts department of your company.
For more examples you can visit the site finpinch.com and search for section 87A. Few more examples with detailed explanation of the section is provided on the site.
Hope your doubts are clear.
