According to the provisions TDS need to be deducted. For the reasons i am discussing important Sections and their interpretations.

 

Section 192- TDS on salary need to be deducted as per the provisions of Section 192. As per Section 192 TDS shall be deducted as per the rate applicable in the relevant Finance Act.

Section 206AA - This Section was introduced by Finance Act 2009. As per this section if any person does not provide his/her PAN then TDS need to be deducted @ 20 %.

 

In case of salary, we think that tax is not applicable till Rs. 1,60,000 but it is not so. In the Finance Act we see it properly in the columm of rate NIL is mentioned. It means that it is not exempted but rate of tax is zero.

With this we can conclude that if any employee is not providing his PAN no then TDS shall be deducted due to Section 206AA @ 20%

But In my opinion and as per the reading of 206AA which states as follows

 

“Notwithstanding anything contained in any other provisions of this act, any person entitled to receive any sum or income or amount, on which tax is deductible under chapter XVIIB (hereafter referred to as deductee) shall furnish his PAN to the person responsible for deducting such tax (hereafter referred to as deductor), failing which tax shall be deducted at the higher rate.”

 

Please note the important wordings in the text of section are “on which tax is deductible”, i.e if the employee getting salary less than Rs. 160000 i.e exemption limit, then they are not getting sum on which tax is to dedutible. hence section 206AA is not apply to them, no tds will be deduct on them.

 

If the person is getting salary more than exemption limit and claiming deduction u/s 80 C for tax saving, then PAN no. should be must.

It he is not providing, then you can apply Section 206AA and TDS 20% will be deduct on it.

20. In Form 24Q, should the particulars of even those employees be given whose income is below the threshold limit or in whose case, the income after giving deductions for savings etc. is below the threshold limit?

 

 

 

 

Particulars of only those employees are to be reported from the 1st quarter onwards in Form 24Q in whose case the estimated income for the whole year is above the threshold limit.

 

 

In case the estimated income for the whole year of an employee after allowing deduction for various savings like PPF, GPF, NSC etc. comes below the taxable limit, his particulars need not be included in Form 24Q.

 

In case due to some reason estimated annual income of an employee exceeds the exemption limit during the course of the year, tax should be deducted in that quarter and his particulars reported in Form 24Q from that quarter onwards
