    Hi..i was miss sold a regular life insurance policy as a single premium policy. When i got to know that i told the company but they did not do anything. I filed a case and after many hearings court passed an order to refund my premium with an interest @ 8% per day till the amount is paid and a compensation of rs 20000/-. The company while paying the interest and compensation deducted a tax @20% and gave the balance to me. Should there be tax deducted in these
