  16. Hi Amit,
    While investing in FD, the form 15G was already submitted to the banks and the banks hadn’t deducted the TDS which is evident from Form 26AS . But while efiling, those amounts were automatically picked up from Form 26AS under income from other sources and the increase the tax burden and also surprised to see there was an additional component of interest u/s 234B & 234C which appeared while efiling the tax. If it happens like this, then what is the purpose of providing the Form 15 G while investing in FD’s. Kindly clarify whether any way to avoid this interest component.
