Dear Sir/Madam,

Acknowledgement by banks at the time of submission of Form 15-G / 15-H

As you are aware banks are not required to deduct TDS from depositors who submit declaration in Form 15-G/15-H under Income Tax Rules, 1962. However, it has been brought to our notice that despite submission of Form 15-G/15-H by customers, banks are deducting tax at source, at times, causing inconvenience to customers resulting in a number of complaints.  Such instances arise because either the forms are misplaced or a track is not kept of forms received in the branches.

2. The matter has been examined by us in consultation with Indian Banks’ Association (IBA). With a view to protect interest of the depositors and for rendering better customer service, banks are advised to give an acknowledgment at the time of receipt of Form 15-G/15-H. This will help in building a system of accountability and customers will not be put to inconvenience due to any omission on part of the banks.

Yours faithfully,

(Rajesh Verma)
Chief General Manager
