tds can not be deducted while making payment for purchases,
tds will be deducted only on job works, for example: while
making payment to contractors, sub contractors, payments
for proffesional and technical services, while paying
interest and rents, commisions, salaries etc,
Basic to know the nature of service rendered against the

the invoice than TDS is applicable only on labour , if
breakup is not shown TDS to be deducted on bill value.
VAT is charged by Vendor as the material involved for
finishing required service involves material which he has
purchased by paying VAT
