What you can do is, list the exemptions and deductions that you avail currently under the old tax regime, minus them from your salary to see what is your taxable income. If you opt new tax regime, you may have to let go of most of these exemptions and deductions. Based on this, you can decide which regime you can opt for.

An article relating to this Difference Between Old Income Tax Regime Vs New: Which one to Opt? (etmoney.com) may be of some help.
