TDS - Tax deduction at Source - You will deduct it when you made some payments for salaries, contracts, rent, professional fees etc. and that is your liability. Some time your tax is also deducted by some one else, whose work you have done and that is asset for you and you can adjust it with your tax liability at the time of filing your return.
