To begin with the process, goto Form 26Q and click on Deduction details under the applicable Quarter.

In the displayed window, select the deductee/customer and the applicable section i.e. 194A. Also, enter the Payment amount and Payment date. If the deductee/customer has given Form 15G/15H (as applicable), then the rate of tax has to be made ZERO as no TDS is applicable in such cases.

Note: This provision is applicable only if the deductee/customer has provided a Valid PAN.

Next, provide the reason for ZERO deduction as NO DEDUCTION U/S 197A and the Certificate number.

Note: Certificate number for Form 15G starts with Alphabet G and that for Form 15H starts with alphabet H.

Now, click on Save and the record will be saved.
