The buyer of a virtual digital asset (VDA) must deduct 1% of the amount paid to the seller (an Indian resident) as income tax withheld at source under the new rule (TDS). Whichever occurs first, the tax must be subtracted either when the money is credited to the account or when it is paid to the resident individual. According to CBDT, the tax will only be deducted if the amount paid is greater than the maximum allowed. Read more: How TDS on crypto, virtual digital assets will work from July 1, 2022

According to a circular from the PFRDA, subscribers would be exposed to different levels of risk when investing in different classes of pension fund assets.

These risk levels will help provide accurate information about the dangers of different NPS programs before you participate. As of July 15, 2022, the new rules will apply to all existing Class E, C, G and A plans.
