Tax Liabilities on IDFC Bank Recurring Deposit

The limit on the interest income earned is Rs.40,000 per financial year, and the one for senior citizens is Rs.50,000 per financial year. Income tax will be deducted at source (TDS) by the bank if the interest earned on the FD and RD accounts across the bank branches exceeds this limit. TDS will be applicable at 10%.

It is now reduced to 7.5% due to the pandemic effective between May 2020 until March 2021. You can submit Form 15G or Form 15H, based on applicability, to the bank requesting not to deduct tax at source if your annual income is within the basic exemption limit.
