What will be the surcharge rate on foreign dividend if the income exceeds 2 Crore for a individual. Is it flat 15% for all dividend from shares and units. Also what about foreign dividends. Is it 15% or 25% for foreign dividends?

The withholding tax rates given above are for Indian companies, over the dividend distribution of 20% + surcharge+ cess.

For dividend received from foreign companies it may differ as per DTAA agreement with the countries.
