  1. Hey @Rishi1,

    26QC needs to be filed annually when your monthly rent exceeds ₹50,000. TDS is to be deducted once in a financial year. It can be either deducted at the time of credit of the rent to the account of the landlord for the last month of the financial year OR the last month of the tenancy if the property is vacated during the year.

    In your case, you can deduct the TDS for April along with the TDS of the last month of the financial year and file form 26QC.

  2. Hwy @Rishi1,

    Form 26QC is filed on an annual basis. However, in your case, as the rent for April month does not exceed ₹50,000, you are not required to deduct TDS or file a TDS return for the same.

    Hope this helps!
