TCS provisions under section 206C to also be attracted on sale of gold coins and articles weighing 10 gms

The Finance Act, 2012 had inserted sub-section (1D) in section 206C to provide for collection of tax at source on sale of bullion or jewellery, if the consideration exceeds Rs.2 lakh and Rs.5 lakh, respectively.

A coin or article weighing 10 gms or less was, however, excluded from the applicability of the provisions of this section.

Since the exclusion was giving an opportunity for misuse, the same is now proposed to be withdrawn with effect from 1.6.2013. Consequently, the provisions for tax collection at source under section 206C would be attracted even in respect of sale of coins or articles weighing 10 gms or less, if the consideration exceeds Rs. 2 lakh.
