Calculated interest for two months (7%) = 11,506.85
10% tax from interest income = 11,506.85 x 10% = 1,150.68
Paid net interest for two months = 11,506.85 - 1,150.68 = 10,356.16

Recalculated interest for two months (3%) = 4,931.51
10% tax from interest income = 4,931.51 x 10% = 493.15
Net interest to be paid for two months = 4,931.51 - 493.15 = 4,438.36

Deductible amount from deposit principle = 10,356.16 - 4,931.51 = 5,917.81
