FINANCE BILL, 2021
Chapter III
DIRECT TAXES - Income-tax
  • Contents

Amendment of section 196D.

49. In section 196D of the Income-tax Act, in sub-section (1), the following proviso shall be inserted, namely:––

“Provided that where an agreement referred to in subsection (1) of section 90 or sub-section (1) of section 90A applies to the payee and if the payee has furnished a certificate referred to in sub-section (4) of section 90 or sub-section (4) of section 90A, as the case may be, then, income-tax thereon shall be deducted at the rate of twenty per cent. or at the rate or rates of income-tax provided in such agreement for such income, whichever is lower.”.

 



 

Notes on Clauses:

Clause 49 of the Bill seeks to amend section 196D of the Income-tax Act relating to income of Foreign Institutional Investors from securities.

Sub-section (1) of the said section provides for deduction of tax on any income referred to in clause (a) of sub-section (1) of section 115AD, not being income by way of interest referred to in section 194LD of the Income-tax Act, payable to a Foreign Institutional Investor, being the person responsible for making the payment, at the rate of twenty per cent.

It is proposed to insert a proviso to the said sub-section so as to provide that where an agreement referred to in sub-section (1) of section 90 or sub-section (1) of section 90A applies to the payee and if the payee has furnished a certificate referred to in sub-section (4) of section 90 or sub-section (4) of section 90A, as the case may be, then, income tax thereon shall be deducted at the rate of twenty per cent. or at the rate or rates of income-tax provided in such agreement for such income, whichever is lower.

This amendment will take effect from 1st April, 2021.
