Hi Sachin,

The due date is 15th of subsequent month in which the deduction is made.

Section 7Q.
The employer shall be liable to pay simple interest at the rate of twelve per cent per annum or at such higher rate as may be specified in the Scheme on any amount due from him under this Act from the date on which the amount has become so due till the date of its actual payment:

Section 14B.
