How to deduct TDS in banking on interest income?

Banks must deduct TDS on the interest income from Fixed Deposits when interest from one FD or sum of all FDs with the bank is more than Rs 10,000 in a year.

If your PAN details are accessible with the bank TDS will be deducted at 10% from your interest grown at the end of each year. Banks have to deduct interest that is due at the end of each year, it may not be paid.

If the bank does not take your PAN details in its accounts, it will deduct TDS at 20%.

You can view the particulars of your TDS deducted in Form 26AS. Form 26AS covers details of tax directly paid by you to the government as advance tax or self-assessment tax.

Occasionally the bank may wrongly deduct TDS at 20% when you do have a PAN, but this data was missed by the bank or not accessible with them, or your PAN was improper in their records. Since all the information in your Form 26AS is related with your PAN, this TDS may not get replicated in your Form 26AS. In such a case you may not be able to right this TDS against your final tax payable on your income.

Anyone who deducts TDS has to submit a TDS Return of all the TDS deducted by them and that is how this data influences your Form 26AS.
