If tax is being deducted, it must be paid to Income tax department.
Any employee can check his form 26 AS in the income tax site and see how much tax is deducted and how much is shown in form 26 AS.
You can openly question the management if suitable answers are not coming forth about tax being deducted but not paid to government.
There is no future in such dishonest companies.
Take the matter forcefully with management and move on.
Where required keep IT department informed in writing about this fraud being done to employee as well as Government.

Thank you for your reply,
further If the salary is below 2.5 Lack PA , is it TAX is applicable ??
only Professional Tax is applicable as per my knowledge,
but these guys are deducting 10% TAX , what is that ?

TDS Rate on Salary:
Any employer has the authority to deduct tax at source while making the actual payment to the employee. The employers deduct tax from salaries only at the time of payment. TDS is deducted if the total income of the employee is taxable. TDS will not be deducted if your total income is Rs. 2, 50,000. This amount is applicable for men and women below the age of 60 years. Normally, TDS deduction rate on salary ranges from 10% to 30%.
Hope this makes things clear.

Dear sandeep, whether ur company show as employee on salary register? Whether they deduct ur EPF ? I think they treat u as a freelancer or out source agency b'coz they deduct 10 percent tax. It is true they u may ask to issue TDS certificate form 16 or 16 A in that they clearly mention type of services they take from u. In

Why should there be confusion even of status of employee?
Even if 10% is deducted,it should reflect in form 26 AS of employee?
There have been cases where TDS is deducted but not paid to government.
Recent case took place in Banglore.
Employee needs to verify his form 26 AS and take it up with company first incase deducted amounts are not reflected in 26AS.

Dear Sandip,
It is really a matter of concern when the company has not obtained PAN & TAN but deducting TDS from the salary of the employee. You can on-line verify your Tax Credit Statement (Form 26AS).
As an employee you got right ask your empoyer to provide Form16 for all such deductions made in heads of TDS.

From India, Mumbai
Employer is supposed to give you Form 16 towards any deductions under income tax as TDS etc.
Even if the deductions are Nil, The employer must issue Form 16.
Also as advised Check out with 26 AS, to know your deductions if any.
A company must have TAN number, for TDS deductions.

Dear Bijoy,
If no deduction is made form 16 may not be issued by employer.
