Net winnings on GetMega are subject to the Tax Deducted at Source (TDS), which is submitted to the Indian tax authorities under Section 194B of the Income Tax Act. The revised TDS Policy at GetMega has been recommended by senior tax consultants, and proves to be extremely favourable for our users
Effective as on 1 Aug 2021
Before 1 Aug 2021:
TDS of 31.2% was deducted if the total winnings in 1 sitting crossed Rs 10,000, as per government rules. The amount would be credited to your wallet only after the necessary tax deductions.
Example: A player Ramesh plays a couple of hands of Rummy/Poker in a single table, and below is the distinction between TDS calculation as per previous policy & current policy.
Previous TDS Policy
Current TDS Policy
Suppose, A Player named Ramesh is playing Texas Hold’em Poker in a 6 players table at BB200 table and bet amounts for that particular hand is distributed as below,
Ramesh won the match and gained Winnings of Rs. 12,000 and Net Winnings of Rs. 10,000 in this hand. In this scenario, as per the current TDS policy 31.2% TDS will be deducted on Rs. 10,000
Suppose, the same player Ramesh is playing Rummy in a 6 players table at PR30 table and his gameplay follows like,
Ramesh won the match by 400 points with net winnings of 12,000 rupees. In this scenario, as per the current TDS policy 31.2% TDS will be deducted (i.e. 3,744 rupees) and the remaining balance will be credited to the stack.
In a nutshell, A player with total points won upto 333 points in a single match at PR tables upto PR30, will not be eligible for any TDS deduction in Rummy.
