Tax Implication on Recurring Deposit (RD)
Taxability of Interest Earned

Applicability of TDS
On total interest gained up to Rs. 10,000, no TDS will be deducted. TDS of 10% is deducted if the cumulative interest received in a financial year reaches Rs 10,000. Any additional TDS may be claimed for a refund. Previously, there was no TDS on RD, but that changed on June 1, 2015, when TDS on RD became applicable under Section 194A.
More Rate of TDS
TDS of 20% is rendered if you do not have a valid PAN or if you do not have the PAN details to the bank/post office.
If the RD account holder does not have taxable income, he or she can escape TDS by sending Form 15G/ Form 15H to the bank/post office where the RD account was opened.
