Query 1] I am senior citizen. My present means of livelihood is my pension and bank FD interest. It amounts to around rupees six and half lakh. In the present FY, the tax for income till five lakhs is 5% and above that is 20%. Most of my income falls into the 5% tax bracket the bank however cuts TDS at 10%.
