  1. No interest is levied on taxpayer if shortfall in payment of Advance Tax occurs due to capital gains or winning from lottery, etc.
  2. Further for interest calculation u/s 234C if advance tax paid is less than 12% or 36% than only interest is applicable but advance tax should be paid 15% and 45% for 15th June and 15th September.
