Last udpated: Jan. 15, 2019, 12:48 p.m.

Applicability and Rate

This section casts responsibility on any person responsible for paying to a resident any sum by way of consideration, not being consideration in kind, under a specified agreement under section 45(5A), to deduct income-tax at the rate of 10% .

Time of deduction

This deduction is to be made at the time of credit of such sum to the account of the payee or at the time of payment thereof in cash or by issue of cheque or draft or by any other mode, whichever is earlier.

Non-applicability of section 194-IA

Since tax deduction at source for specified agreement under section 45(5A) is covered under section 194-IC, the provisions of section 194-IA do not get attracted in the hands of the transferee in such cases.

Meaning of specified agreement 

Specified agreement under section 45(5A):

  • It means a registered agreement in which a person owning land or building or both, agrees to allow another person to develop a real estate project on such land or building or both.
  • The consideration, in this case, is a share, being land or building or both in such project; Part of the consideration may also be in cash.
