After the removal of Section 80L of the Income Tax Act, interest income from any source including savings account, is subject to tax. As per existing rules, as long as the combined interest income that you earn, on any savings accounts or fixed deposits, at a single bank branch, is less than Rs 10,000 there will be no tax deducted at source.
