However, continuing the same example say on day 2 you put in a request to withdraw another Rs. 5,000 (your deposit till date being 5,000 and withdrawal till date being 15,000) TDS shall be applicable at 30% on the full Rs.5,000 and net Rs. 3,500 shall be paid post deduction of TDS.
2. Assuming you have deposited Rs. 20,000 till date of withdrawal and the withdrawals prior to today’s request were Rs. 5,000. If the withdrawal request is for or up to Rs. 15,000 – no TDS shall be deducted; however, if you withdraw 25,000 – TDS shall be deducted on the differential Rs. 10,000 @ 30% which is Rs. 3,000
3. Deposit till date is Rs. 20,000 and withdrawal till date is Rs. 30,000 and the TDS was paid on the Rs. 10,000 as Rs. 3000. Now, let’s assume you deposit Rs. 40,000 and now you request a withdrawal of Rs. 20,000. There shall be no TDS on Rs. 20,000 withdrawal
