Strong Protest Needed Against Harsh DTC Provision

Abolishing Declarations For Non Deduction Of TDS!

Manubhai Shah, a senior citizen, is earning interest on his bank deposits of Rs.2,40,000. However, since he is not liable to pay any income-tax on his total income after eligible deductions, he currently enjoys the relief of exemption from TDS by submitting the prescribed Form 15H to the respective banks making interest payments.

  • Harsh and bizarre consequences to arise on account of the new provision prescribing 10% TDS in respect of payments of ‘any other income’.
  • Even personal and commercial transactions, such as receipt of any consideration for sale of goods or services or transfer of any movable or immovable property, to attract TDS, which in several cases could work out much higher than the actual profit earned from the transaction. (more…)
