First the income will be taxed as income from other source, the flat rate is 30% , if they earned income any other head of income the same will be reduced with the amount of donation eligible under section 80G. in short the winning amount is not eligible for deduction.

1. TDS will be deducted on the amount of winning u/s 194B @ 30% before remitting the same to the winner.
2. If you have received the amount and subsequently donated the same, based on the fund to which donation is made deductions will be available on your income.
3. But if the same is donated directly, I think there is an exemption to the whole amount donated to such trust or institution (which qualifies for deductions).
4. However, I could not find case laws or situations explaining the same.
Please correct me if the above solution has an alternative view.
