These changes include a higher limit of 3 crore for TDS on cash withdrawal provided to co-operative societies, removing the minimum threshold of INR 10,000 for TDS related to online gaming, and reducing the TDS rate from 30% to 20% on the taxable portion of EPF withdrawal in non-PAN cases.

Section 192A: The TDS rate on PF withdrawal for employees who do not have PAN has been reduced from the maximum marginal rate to 20%.

What is TDS (Tax Deducted at Source)?

The TDS stands for tax deducted at source. As per the Income Tax Act, any company or person making a payment is required to deduct tax at source if the payment exceeds certain threshold limits. TDS has to be deducted at the rates prescribed by the tax department.
