Section 194Q – TDS on Purchase of Goods limits the scope and applicability of the Section 206C(1H) – TCS on Sale of Goods as the Second Proviso to Section 206C(1H) states that if the buyer deducts tax as per any other provision on the goods purchased by him, no tax shall be collected on the same transaction.
Let us go through both the provisions for better understanding and distinction-

In a nutshell, it can be said that only if conditions of Sec 194Q are not satisfied and the sale of goods exceed Rs 50L where the seller’s TO in previous year is >Rs.10 Cr then Sec 206(1H) shall apply and TCS at the rate as specified.
