TDS cut at 20% on Fixed Deposits – Why ?

POSTED BY maha1986 ON January 31, 2014 3:07 pm COMMENTS (3)

My bank has deducted an amount of tax from my fixed deposits, that is absurd if the TDS rate is 10% but possible if rate is 20%. If my gross income and interests from FDs are added the total taxable amount overcomes 5 lakh band.

My question is-

Does any bank deduct TDS @20% assuming total taxable income crosses 5 lakhs? Second question is the amount deducted is not shown in 26AS. why?
