  • 4,097 Views | Updated on: May 24, 2024

TDS, or Tax Deducted at Source, is a tax in which a person is supposed to deduct tax for the services given. The government uses the tax deducted from the full payment sum for a variety of purposes, including building infrastructure, defense, and growth, and a specific type of tax (TDS) is imposed depending upon the nature of the service.

It is intended to be deducted by the person. The deductee can claim  a TDS refund online or offline if the deductions are more than the necessary tax amount. The person must file something known as a TDS Return to get the return. TDS can be collected on a monthly, periodic, or one-time basis, and it pertains to salaries, interest, commissions, and fees, among other things. This blog will explore the changes in tax slabs for the FY 2023-24 tax exemptions under Section 80C. But let us take a quick look at the new provisions under the Union budget 2023.

Union Budget 2023 New TDS Provisions

The government of India has announced several changes to the TDS rules in the 2023 budget. The New TDS provisions include:

  • Section 194BA
  • A TDS of 30% will be deducted from income earned from online gaming.

  • Section 196A
  • Non-residents earning income from mutual funds in India can now choose to pay a lower tax rate given in the tax treaty by providing a tax residency certificate.

  • Section 192A
  • Employees who do not furnish PAN will now receive their provident fund balance after a 20% tax deduction instead of the maximum marginal rate (MMR).

  • Section 193
  • Tax will now be deducted from the interest earned on listed securities in dematerialized form.

  • Section 194N
  • The TDS threshold for cooperative societies has been increased from Rs. 1 Crore to Rs. 3 Crore.

  • Section 194R
  • It has been clarified that TDS should be deducted from benefits or perquisites, whether they are in cash, in kind, or a combination of both.

  • New Section 155(20)
  • Taxpayers can now apply for the tax credit in the financial year in which the income is declared in their tax return if the tax on that income is deducted in the following financial year.

    These changes are designed to improve tax compliance and ensure that taxpayers pay the correct amount of tax. They will also help to simplify the tax system and make it easier for taxpayers to file their returns.

Tax Exemption Under 80C

Section 80C is amongst the most well-known sections for tax persons since it permits them to lower their tax liability by undertaking tax-saving investments. It provides a maximum deduction of ₹1.5 lakhs from the person’s overall income each year. Individuals and HUFs can both take advantage of this exemption, and this deduction is not available to corporations, partnership businesses, or LLPs. Tax exemption under 80C and its subsections are as follows:

  • 80CCC80CCD (1)
  • 80CCD (1B)
  • 80CCD (1C)

Tax Exemption Under TDS

Tax exemptions under TDS are subject to specific conditions and requirements laid down by the Income Tax Act and relevant rules and notifications issued by the government. Additionally, taxpayers must meet the eligibility criteria and furnish the necessary documents to avail of these exemptions. TDS exemption rates are applied based on the following criteria:

Exemption of TDS On Insurance

Premiums paid for insurance policies are not taxable income, but you may have to pay TDS on a claim if the policy matures.

House Rental Earnings

A paid employee who lives in rented accommodation can use the House Rent Allowance or HRA. This might be completely or partially exempt from income tax.

Claim For TDS Refund

If you pay more than necessary based on your income, you can apply for a TDS refund claim online.

Mobile Bills

The cost of a taxpayer’s mobile phone and home phone may be deducted. An employee can request a tax-free reimbursement for expenses incurred under income tax laws. A request for compensation of either the exact amount paid on their bill or the amount included in their salary package (whichever is smaller) can be raised.

TDS Rates for Non-Resident Indians (Other than a Company), Domestic and Non-domestic Companies

The TDS rates for non-resident Indians (NRIs) differ from those for residents. The TDS rates for NRIs depend on the type of income they receive. For example, the TDS rate on interest income received by NRIs is 20%, while the TDS rate on dividend income received by NRIs is 30%.

Here is the latest information on TDS rates for NRI transactions (other than a company):


TDS rate

Interest on securities


Royalties and fees for technical services


Dividends from Indian companies


Income from transfer of capital assets

20% (or lower rate as per DTAA)

Income from business or profession

20% (or lower rate as per DTAA)

Payments for carrying out technical services in India


Payments for use or right to use any industrial, commercial or scientific equipment


Payments for imparting training or providing any other technical services


The TDS rates for companies also vary depending on the type of income they receive. For example, the TDS rate on interest income received by companies is 10%, while the TDS rate on dividend income received by companies is 20%.

The TDS rates for the financial year 2023-24 are subject to change. The latest TDS rates can be found on the website of the Income Tax Department of India.


TDS plays a vital role in the nation’s revenue collection. It makes sure that taxes are deducted at the source of income, making the tax compliance process more efficient and transparent. It is always a good idea to keep a watch on the new TDS slab information in order to stay up to date on the newest guidelines, tax percentages, and even deadlines. Remember, taxation is not just a legal obligation but a responsible contribution toward building a stronger and prosperous nation. The more you educate yourselves about TDS and other tax-related matters, the better you can contribute to your country’s growth and development.
