    Signalling mandatory prosecution in all cases above Rs. 1 lac default is unreasonable. In fact having mandatory clause should be avoided. There can be an assessee that deposits lacs or crs of TDS yet one failure to deposit late TDS should not subject it to prosecution process. Those who are habitual defaulters only should face prosecution and not those who make one odd lapse.
