I participated in an online software development competition conducted by a US based company. I won the prize and got the money without they deducting any tax, as I submitted the form W-BEN.
Now when I am filing my income tax returns, I am confused as where do I need to put this ? Will it come under ‘winnings from lotteries, crossword puzzles, races games, gambling, betting etc’ section of Sheet ‘CG-OS’ of ITR-2 ?
I see there is ‘Income from other sources’ section in ITR-1, but then they ask to fill in TDS-2, and since there is no tax deducted at source I don’t know what to do.
Please help me identifying the correct place to fill this detail.

It would need to go in Income From Other sources as winnings. Unfortunately, this would attract flat 30% tax and you would have to pay it in full as no TDS is deducted.
