    Plz give me proper guidance..

    1. PARAS CHHAJED says:

      MOD interest is alike interest on FDR and therefore the banks deduct tax at source u/s 194A if the interest during a financial year exceeds Rs.40000. In case of senior citizen the limit is Rs.50000. If tax payable on your total income is NIL then you may file Form No. 15G ( Form 15H for senior citizens) with your banker so that no TDS is made.
