I am a government employee and my tax is deducted at source i.e. in my salary. Can by niyat (intention) I use the interest money of my bank account as a compensation for the tax deducted directly from my salary. I have read that interest money can be used for paying the tax but in my case tax is directly being deducted from my salary.
