Aircraft lease

An Indian Pvt Ltd company leased an aircraft from a UAE based corporation, similar to a lot of other airlines and charter operators in India lease airplanes from foreign companies.
Its not a lease purchase nor a lien agreement. Nor its financing agreement. its simple monthly lease irrespective of the usage or hours flown.
We believe we simply need to remit the lease amount of for example $90,000 per month to the UAE company as per agreement.
Does it attracts any TDS? does it attracts any other taxes in India?

I will get back to you in rate of TDS.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on the above.

Dear Sir,

Considering the nature of transaction TDS is applicable in the same. But to decide on the rate, you need to refer the DTAA agreement and check under which class does the transaction specifically fall.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Feel free to get back/ call back for any further clarifications. 

Thanking You.
