Chartered accountants Vikas Aggarwal and Harigopal Patidar have analyzed these provisions for . According to him, 75-year-old senior citizens who have income from pension and interest only, they can get exemption to file returns. However, the elderly have to keep in mind that all the deposits they have, should be in a bank with a pension account. If presently in another bank, they can get it transferred to pension bank. It is also important to keep in mind that if there is more interest in an old FD and there is time to complete it, then it would be right not to break the FD. In such a case you will not get the benefit of this scheme of the government. But there will also be no loss of interest. Just like before, returns have to be filed.

Bank will have to provide information about various investments
To get the exemption of filing returns in the bank with your pension account, the bank will have to give information about various investments such as PPF, Life Insurance, ELSS, ULIS etc. under Section 80C-80U of Income Tax. For this, the bank will give you a form. Government will issue this form soon. Understand this like that in a job, you give all the information to your company, in a similar way. Now the bank will exclude the deductible deductions mentioned in the Income Tax Act from the income and will deduct TDS on the remaining taxable income. The Income Tax Department will consider this information of the bank as a return to you. The advantage of this would be that if there was a mistake in filing returns earlier, then a penalty of Rs 5000 was imposed. Now she will not have to give.
Above 75 years, these senior citizens will not get benefit
Elders with income other than pension or income from rent, dividend, capital gains or business etc. will have to file returns as before. Not only this, the pension bank and deposit bank will have to submit the returns even if they are different.

Yadav’s income from pension is Rs 350000 annually and income from interest is Rs 250000. He too has a pension and deposit with SBI. While Chauhan’s pension comes to SBI at Rs 350000 per annum and the deposit is in BoI. The interest they get from deposits is Rs 250000 annually.

Therefore, the bank has deducted TDS of 15000 rupees on the interest received from the deposit. They will have to file a return to get it refunded. Whereas Yadav has neither deducted TDS on his equal income nor needs to file returns.
