TDS on Car Hire

Hi, I wish to know that if a company enter into a contract of 2 year of hiring a car (Rs.3 lakh per year) for office use. Is the company liable to deduct tax while making payment to party as per 194 I (TDS on Rent of Machinery as car is a part of mechinery, I believe) or tax should be deducted as per 194C (TDS on Contract for service) - Thanks, Gyan

Dear Friends Rate Applicable here is U/S 194C rate Applicable to Contractors and not rate applicable to renting property.

Though the exact nature of 'agreement' need to be looked into, from the details given, I feel that the TDS applicable would be under Sec.194I at the basic rate of 10% (with Surcharge/cess as applicable). In addition, I am of the view that the transaction would attract tax under the VAT provisions also, if it is entered into in the nature of 'lease transaction'.
