Tax payment after resigning from a company and going for higher studies?

Hi I am an Indian resident. I was an employee of an IT firm in India for the past 3.5 years until i resigned shortly 2 weeks back as i would be going for higher studies a couple of months later. Mean time i would be preparing myself for the study and not to be engaged in earning. So i need to know do i need to pay the tax after i resigned from the company and the fact i am no more a salaried person. If yes what’s the structure like?
