Up to 30.6.2010 -Interest rate 1 % per month or part of the month

from 1.7.2010= 1.50 % per month or part of the month

so your case total interest is = 14 +1.50= 15.50%

Interest would be = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3

Dear friends,

I also want to have a clarification as the person in the query is suggesting that the TDS was deposited late.

But it was deposited on 07/07/2009 i.e interest to be paid was 1 % each for may/June/July.

But the point is that TDS was deposited without the interest. So what will be the interest calculation , if to be paid now ?

Thanks Mr.Subash for correction

Sorry my calculation has been taken on 7th July 2010,

Actual Interest is 3 % which(1+1+1) only

Its okay.... that Interest should be 3 of TDS amount, had it been paid alongwith the late payment of TDS.

But since the interest part was not being paid, will the interest be charged on the interest itself ?

Interest payable will be 1+1+1.5=3.5% of TDS amount

Subhash ji interest will not be charged on interest.

Mr. Sanjay....

TDS paid in 2009 , not 2010.

So question of 1.5 % is not there ?

but as you said in the second line.. that interest on interest will not be charged, will your answer be the same considering the above (2009-----2010) ?

Sorry i thought it is 2010.
It will be 1+1+1=3%
Even if deposited in 2010 no interest on interest amount will be charged.
