After a few , months , when she checked her bank statement hse realized that a huge amount was charged as TDS and it was there in her bill. She was shocked to see that. That TDS was charged on a gift of 1500/- although she has not received that gift either. He immediately contacted the bank and they informed that it was offered by the bank to the customers who have made a transaction of 15000/- at once. Of course she has made that transaction. and now she has to pay 10% TDS on the gift value.
