Due to outbreak of pandemic Covid-19 virus, there is severe disruption in the normal working of almost all sectors of economy including functioning of the Banks, other Institutions etc. Amidst such situation, there can be instances that some eligible persons may not be able to submit the Form 15G and 15H timely to the Banks, other Institutions etc. This would result into the deduction of TDS by the Banks and other Institutions even where there is no tax-liability. To mitigate the genuine hardship of such persons, the CBDT issues following directions/clarifications by exercise of its powers u/s 119 of the Act.
