TDS on the interest income accrued to the minor is required to be deducted against PAN of the minor child– incase both the parents of minor are dead

It has been brought to the notice of CBDT that in cases of minors whose both the parents have deceased, TDS deductors/ Banks are clubbing the interest income accrued to the minor in the hand of grandparents and issuing TDS certificates to the grandparents, which is not in accordance with the law as the Income-tax Act envisages clubbing of minor’s income with that of the parents only and not any other relative. Ideally in such type of situations, the income should be assessed in the hands of the minor and the income-tax returns be filed by the minor through his/ her guardian.

CBDT clarified that in case of minors where both the parents have deceased, TDS on the interest income accrued to the minor is required to be deducted and reported against PAN of the minor child unless a declaration is filed under sub-rule(2) of Rule 37BA of the LT. Rules,1962 to that effect.”
