It is 1.5% p.m or part there of. Hence it will be 3% for delay of 2 months.

3 months i.e. 4.5%.

Its 1.5% per month or part thereof. So if not paid by 7th Interest will be considered from month or part in excess thereof. So For April to June 3 months and interest will be 4.5%.

If not paid on due date, interest will be charged at 1.5% per month or part there of. So, default is only 2 month, i.e., may and jun. Therefore, interest will be charged @3%

Disagree. Due date 7th will be considered only if paid in time if paid after due date period of default will be calculated from the date of deduction. And therefore interest need to be paid for 3 months.
