The first thing which comes to everyone’s mind is “what is interest on securities?”. As per section 2(28B) of Income Tax Act, “interest on securities” means any interest on security (issued by the government whether state or central) and interest on debentures/securities (issued by the company a corporation or local authority established by Central, State or Provincial act).
Hence, any such interest income as received above will attract tax deduction u/s 193.
Further, the provisions of this section of TDS are as follows:
Any person who is giving interest income on securities to a resident is required to deduct tax before releasing the interest amount.
The rate of tax u/s 193 is 10%. The time of deduction is earlier of, the credit of income to the account of the payee (receiver) or actual payment (in cash, cheque, draft or other modes).
In case, PAN is not available or not furnished by the payee, TDS will be deducted at Maximum Marginal Rate.
However, lower TDS certificate & Nil TDS certificate under section 197 can be issued under this section if conditions satisfied.

However, the amount of penalty cannot be more than the amount of TDS for which return needs to be filed.
