FINANCE BILL, 2017
Chapter III
DIRECT TAXES - Income-tax
  • Contents

Amendment of section 194LA.

66. In section 194LA of the Income-tax Act, after the proviso and before the Explanation, the following proviso shall be inserted, namely:-

“Provided further that no deduction shall be made under this section where such payment is made in respect of any award or agreement which has been exempted from levy of income-tax under section 96 of the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 (30 of 2013).”.

 



 

Notes on Clauses:

Clause 66 of the Bill seeks to amend section 194LA of the Income-tax Act relating to payment of compensation on acquisition of certain immovable property.

The said section, inter alia, provides that any person responsible for paying compensation to a resident shall deduct tax at source at the rate of ten per cent. on the compensation or enhanced compensation or consideration on account of compulsory acquisition of any immovable property (other than agricultural land) under any law for the time being in force subject to certain conditions specified therein.

It is proposed to amend the said section so as to insert a new proviso to provide that no deduction of tax at source shall be made under this section, where such payment is made in respect of any award or agreement which has been exempted from the levy of income-tax under section 96 of the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.

This amendment will take effect from 1st April, 2017.
