The idea of earning money by participating in a game show has been a crowd-puller, and it all started with KBC. Kon Baniga Karodpati first aired on Star Plus in 2000, giving away prize money of up to Rs. 1 crore to contestants who proved their calibre of general knowledge and current affairs. An Indian adaptation of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”, it became an instant hit among young and adult minds alike, it has seen 14 seasons since then, and there is no looking back. However, do the contestants get all the money they win at KBC? Let’s look at it in detail.
Tax Deduction in KBC Prize Money
You must have seen contestants winning significant amounts within minutes in the KBC show. You must have seen the host, Amitabh Bachchan, signing winning cheque live on the show and handing them over to the contestants. However, that is just a gimmick, and the actual cheque comes from the KBC lottery 2022 team. Contestants do not get all the money they win at KBC since it is a taxable income that gets reduced at the time of final collection.
According to Section 56(2)(ib), any income earned by winning a lottery, crossword puzzle, race, game, or gambling is tax chargeable as “Income from Other Sources”. Any game show or entertainment program comes under the Games category, and the prize money is taxable. According to Section 194B, any person who wins a prize of over Rs. 10,000 gets the award after a TDS deduction of a flat 31.2%. That means a contestant who wins Rs. 1 crore at KBC will need to pay Rs. 31,20,000 as tax.
