I am paying monthly rent exceeding Rs 50,000. I need to deduct TDS for the payments to my landlord. Can I use my landlord's Aadhaar number to deposit TDS with the government?

Yes, you can use your Aadhaar number to deposit the TDS to the government. You will be required to mention your landlord's Aadhaar number. The TDS will be deducted at the rate of 5 per cent. To deposit TDS, you will be required to mention Aadhaar number of your landlord in form 26QC. Here again, the TDS certificate, i.e., Form 16C will reflect the Aadhaar number of your landlord. Further, to deposit TDS you also have the option to quote your Aadhaar number instead of your PAN in form 26QC
