How much interest will be made

Neeraj Aggarwal of Nangia Andersen India said that the CBDT notification has clarified that TDS will not be deducted if the interest earned on Mahila Samman Savings Certificate does not exceed Rs 40,000 in a financial year. Aggarwal said, “Under the scheme, an interest of Rs 15,000 will be generated in a year on a deposit of Rs 2 lakh at 7.5 per cent interest. In two years it will be Rs 32,000. In such a situation, it can be said that in any one financial year the interest is less than Rs 40,000, in which case TDS will not be deducted.
