TDS is nothing but Tax Deducted at Source. whenever we pay against bills (for services) first we deduct some amount from that bill and pay to income tax dept in form of challans at banks. and remaining amount after deduction of tax, we pay to parites. There are some sections based on different type of services. Eg: 194C related to contracts, sub-contracts, advertisements... present rates are 2% for contracts and 1% for sub-contracts and advertisements.

TDS stands for Tax deducted at source. Any income payable to the assessee shall be liable for deduction of tax at source by the person responsible for making payment.
The tax so deducted at source by the payer, has to be deposited in the Government treasury to the credit of Central Govt. within the specified time. The tax so deducted from the income of the recipient is deemed to be payment of Income-tax by the recepient at the time of his assessment. Income from several sources is subjected to tax deduction at source. Presently this concept of T.D.S. is also used as an instrument in enlarging the tax base. Some of such income subjected to T.D.S. are salary, interest, dividend, interest on securities, winnings from lottery, horse races, commission and brokerage, rent, fees for professional and technical services, payments to non-residents etc.

Sec.190 of income tax act deals with deduction at source and advance payments. Other related sections are 192-salary, 193-interest on security, 194-dividend, 194A- interest other than interest on securities, 194B- lottery and crossword puzzles, 194C-payment to contractor and sub contractor, 194J-Professional and technical services, 195 payment to non-residents etc. Effective rates are 1% for contractor(advt.), 2% for other contractors, 10% for professional and technical services, 194D-Insurance Commission-10%, 195-30% etc. for more explanation you can read the relevant sections from any book of direct tax laws.

It is on deduction on payment of specific payment at rate and payment exceeding particular amount. In income tax act TDS detail is given in section 192 to 195.

Deer Videsh, TDS on salary should be deducted on an average basic For example, First calculate the tax liability for the whole year and then divided it by 12, the resulting amount is the TDS on salary.
