TDS or Tax Deducted at Source is an indirect collection scheme, where a person who is responsible for making payment of income is also required to deduct tax at source and deposit the same to the Government’s treasury within the stipulated time period. 

The person who deducts TDS is called deductor and whose tax is deducted is called deductee.
