    The newly introduced section 194J(1)(ba) states that TDS to be deducted @ 10% on remuneration or commission paid to director of the company, but 192 states that TDS to deducted @ average rate on his salary. Now my question is that upto date TDS on manegerial remuneration paid to director is deducted as per Sec 192, but now under which section deduction is to be made. If it is to be made under Sec 192 rate is average rate but if it is under 194J it flat rate @ 10%…..

    please reply…
