Advocate C P Chugh
Government has made it mandatory w.e.f 01.06.2013 on buyer of property to deduct TDS @ 1% on payment made after 01.06.2013 if Purchase Consideration of the Property is Rs. 50 Lakh or more. Deductor can pay such TDS by any of the following mode :-
- Either make the payment online (through e-tax payment option) immediately;
- Or make the payment subsequently through e-tax payment option (net-banking account) or by visiting any of the authorized Bank branches. However, such bank branches will make e-payment without digitization of any challan. The bank will get the challan details from the online form filled on www.tin-nsdl.com
