Relief on TDS/TCS rates is not applicable for the financial year 2021-22. New TDS rates are applicable for the financial year 2021-22, rather we can say that the old rates are now applicable for the financial year 2021-22 onwards.
Due to COVID-19, CBDT had earlier issued notification through which they have provided relief of reduction by 25% on the base rate of TDS as specified under the Income Tax Act.
As per the said notification, the reduced rates were applicable for the financial year 2020-21 i.e., till 31st March 2021, and thereafter the original rates will be restored with effect from 1st April 2021 onwards.
