This tax should be deposited to the specified Government Account through any authorized bank branches in India. The rate of TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) is deductible is @5% of the rent paid or payable. If the tenant/landlord is not a PAN Card holder then the rate of TDS will be @20% which depends on the maximum limit of the amount of rent payable at the month of March or last month of tenancy.
