    Dear Sir/madam,

    Can an individual make cash payment more than Rs,20,000/- to individual contractor for the purpose of construction of residential house?

    Also clarify whether an individual is responsible for deduct TDS from (individual)contractor?

    Yes, you can make payments the Contractor exceeding Rs. 20,000. The ceiling of Rs.20,000 is for businesses where payments made in excess are disallowed and not for Individuals.

    As to deduction of TDS, if the payment that is being made to the contractor does not exceed Rs. 30,000, No TDS on payment to contractor is required to be deducted. However, if the total of all such payments made or to be made during a financial year exceeds Rs. 75,000; TDS shall be deducted under Section 194C

    Thanks Rahul,
    My query is as an individual whether I am liable to deduct TDS from contractor.
    I am constructing residential house, for that I engaged a contractor.
    Somebody told me that individuals are not liable to deduct TDS.
    Please clarify.

    @Raveesha DT : Individuals are not required to deduct any TDS from payment to contractor.

    Only Individuals in Business with turnover of more than 25 Lakhs/ 1 Crore are required to deduct TDS

    Both of us have said the same thing.

    Rahul has mentioned the rules for TDS Deduction for those taxpayers on which Tax Audit is applicable.

    And I have only added that in case Tax Audit is not applicable - TDS will not be deducted.
