    • Interest on savings account is exempt up to Rs10,000 from this Assessment year onwards. Interest on fixed deposits is taxable under head income from other sources. Interest on recurring deposits is also taxable under income from other sources. In case of interest on fixed deposits, if interest is more than Rs10000 then only TDS will be deducted but in case of recurring deposits no TDS will be deducted.
