TDS, abbreviated for tax deducted at source, is an automated taxation mechanism which automatically takes a stipulated percentage of your paycheck and deposits it to the government as tax. For the government, this removes the moral reliance on citizens to manually pay their tax obligations at their discretion. TDS cuts out the legs of potential tax evaders and simultaneously ensures a streamlined source of revenue for the government.
