I have 3 short term FDs (48 days each). Is the TDS applicable on the interest earned?

    If the total interest (earned from all the FD you have with that bank) exceeds 10,000 in a financial year, then bank will deduct TDS at a rate of 10%, and if bank does not have your PAN card details (I am sure they have but just in case 🙂 ) then they will deduct 20% of your interest amount when it exceeds 10,000 as TDS.
