    I have FDs in banks in cumulative mode in which I shall get the maturity after a few years.
    In the mean time interest accrues but not paid.
    What is the correct provisions of Income Tax Act?
    Am I required to include annually accrued interest in each year's income till maturity and pay tax on it?
    Or, I can defer such payment till maturity year and then pay tax on the total accumulated interest?
    Or, I can go either way?

    Income Tax would be required to be paid on Accrued basis every year.

    Deferring the Tax Payment till Maturity is not the correct method.
