TDS on Recurring Deposits in Budget 2015

Currently, TDS is not applicable on the interest earned from the recurring deposits. But Budget 2015 proposed to amend the definition of “Term/Time Deposit” u/s 194(3) to include Recurring Deposits and levy the similar tax as on Fixed Deposits.

Interest earned on Fixed Deposits is liable to tax and banks deduct TDS u/s 194A at the rate of 10% if yearly interest income exceeds Rs.10,000, the same tax treatment is proposed on the recurring deposits also.

So, w.e.f. from 1st June, 2015, Interest earned from Recurring Deposits are also liable to TDS if the interest exceeds Rs.10,000.

 

 

2. Relief on TDS on Life Insurance Proceeds

The above said provision imposed TDS on all the individuals who receive proceeds of Life Insurance Policy, irrespective of their income being below the basic exemption limit.
