With effect from AY 2010-11 Interest received on enhanced Compensation is taxable in the year of Receive and  deduction equal to 50% of such interest income is allowed u/s 57.
This deduction is for exp. Incurred for getting enhance compensation and interest , this is ad-hoc deduction thus we can take direct benifit of 50% irrespective of actual exp. Incurred (means no effect of exp. Done or not or exp.  higher or lower then 50 % )
Hope your query resolve now .

Dear Sir,
The enhanced compensation and interest thereon will be taxable in the year in which it was is received and not in the earlier years. 
As per section 145 of Income Tax Act does say Income from other sources shall be computed in accordance with either cash or mercantile.
so, based on cash basis of accounting you can declare such income in which it is received.
Thanks and regards

Dear Sir,

The enhanced compensation and interest thereon will become taxable in the year of receipt. 

Further as per section 57 of the Act, you can claim ad hoc deduction of 50% on the interest amount.

Please feel free to call/revert in case you require any clarification on the above.
