    A normal fixed deposit is not eligible for tax deduction and neither is the interest on it. In fact the interest earned in a tax saving fixed deposit is also taxable since it is considered a source of income. The tax deducted will however be on the interest that exceeds Rs 10,000 in a year. If you have provided your PAN number then the tax will be about 10% but if you have not, then it will be about 20%. If you are not liable to pay taxes then you can furnish forms 15G & 15H to the bank and the TDS will not be deducted.
