The winnings offered to the users declared as winners of the contest(s) organized by MyTeam11 comply with a deduction of tax ("TDS") under the Income Tax Act 1961. In an event, the net winning amount of a user crosses the mark of ₹10,000, a 30% taxation charge will be imposed on the net winning of the user.

Net Winning = Net amount won by user’s winning teams – Total of entry fee paid for the winning teams – total bonus used

For Example:

Head-to-head contests

  • If you join a contest with ₹2000 entry fee, using ₹500 from the bonus section & win ₹14,000, then your net winning will be calculated as Winnings – (entry fee – bonus used), i.e., 14,000 – (2000 – 500) = 14,000 – 1500 = ₹12,500. A TDS will be implied on the net winning. As the Bonus amount is provided as a promotional incentive to the users, it is exempted from TDS in net winnings.

Multiple-entry Contests

  • If you join a multiple entry contest with entry fee amount ₹49 with 10 teams using 10% bonus & win with your 5 teams as:

    TeamAmount won
    Team 1₹5000
    Team 2₹8000
    Team 3₹2000
    Team 4₹10,000
    Team 5₹3000
  • Your net winning will be Total amount won by 5 winning teams – (Total of entry fee amount paid for 5 winning teams – total bonus used), i.e., (5000 + 8000 + 2000 + 10,000 + 3000) – {(49+ 49+ 49+ 49+ 49) – (4.9 + 4.9 + 4.9 + 4.9 + 4.9)} = 28000 – (245 -24.5) = 28,000 – 220.5 = ₹27,779.5. The net winning is more than ₹10,000, thus, a deduction of 30% will be implied.

Note: As bonuses are a promotional incentive provided to the users, they are exempted from TDS deduction.
