    On prize money of 10000 INR or more, Tax would be deducted at source ("TDS") at the rate specified as per the Indian Income Tax Act 1961 (as amended to date) or as per any other law in force at the time being. The winner will receive the prize money only after above-mentioned deduction.

    TDS is applicable at the time of payment, which is when a Player’s 'Winnings' are calculated. According to the Indian Tax laws, TDS on winnings from card games is on a gross basis, so players cannot deduct their losses and expenses to determine taxable income.

    Thus, Winnings more than 10,000 INR are subject to TDS of 30% (exclusive of surcharge and cess) and payment to the player will be after deduction of such taxes. No TDS or Tax is applicable if the Winning amount is less than 10,000 INR at the time of payment.

The User expressly acknowledges that it remains his/her liability to calculate the total tax due to the relevant tax authorities at the end of the year and to pay any balance tax over and above any TDS that would have been paid on the User’s behalf.
