The Finance Bill, 2017 had proposed a new Section 194IB to the Income Tax Act, 1961 (the "Act"), to provide that individuals and Hindu Undivided Families ("HUFs") paying rent of INR 50,000 (Indian Rupees fifty thousand) or more per month to a resident, will now have to deduct 5% (five per cent) tax at source ("TDS"). This change will be effective from June 1, 2017.
