Validation for TDS amounts in case of higher deduction flag for Form 24Q pertaining to FY 2010-11 onwards:
In case deductor has provided flag for higher rate of deduction i.e., “C” in the TDS statement Form 24Q, the TDS amount for such deductee records should not be less than 20% of the amount paid/credited. This validation is also applicable for correction statement wherein new records are added. The same will not apply for those correction statements where deductee records are being updated.
