Is TDS applicable on EPF withdrawal?

TDS is not applicable if PF is withdrawn after 5 years of payment

I transferred my PF from my previous employer of 2 years 7 months, to my last employer with whom I was employed for 4 years 8 months. Now I wish to withdraw full EPF amount . Will EPF department deduct any tax for full withdrawal, considering that my employment has been more than 5 years?

The EPFO will deduct tax at source (TDS) if an employee meets the following criteria:
1. The EPF withdrawal amount is less than ₹50000
2. The withdrawal amount is over ₹50000 and the employee has not completed 5 years of continuous service
