For citizens of India, in case the FD interest in a particular fiscal year is Rs. 40000 and Rs. 50,000 in case of senior citizen then 10% TDS is to be deducted from the amount accrued as interest income on FD. And if the investor has not furnished the PAN the TDS rate still goes higher to 20%. For non-resident ordinary account holder, the TDS rate is still higher at 30 percent.

While, only a small number of investors go on to calculate the loss due to TDS income, it is more pronounced in case of long term FDs.
