As rent on plant & machinery and rent on property & furniture attracted different rate of TDS, there was lot of confusion which resulted in incorrect deductions leading to unintentional defaults.

This has now been addressed and from the FY: 2013-14, Section 194I (Rent Payment) has now been bifurcated into two sections as under:

  •  194I(a) – Rent for Plant & Machinery – 2%
  •  194I(b) – Rent for land, building & furniture – 10%

    194 I will be applicable only if rent is more than 180,000 in a year.

    what if a person have got 3 tenants of 1,50,000 each rent? whether TDS applies?

      Dear Madam,

      We confirmed this with our Chartered Accountant. Further we didn¢t find this notification in the department website.

      Dear Shweta Ji,

      it is clearly mentioned about TDS on rent of Machinery or plant or equipment in sub-clause (a) and TDS on rent of other than these items in sub-clause(b) of Sec 194I of the IT Act-1964.

      with thanks & regards
