    This is a welcome development; and a sensibly taxpayer
    friendly step taken by the department.
    In the context, attention needs to be prudently invited to the viewpoints urged and placed in public domain on a similar aspect; that has something to do with the correction in the PAN Database, in the event of a change in address, as appearing /last uploaded online.
    For more, see the recently notified amendment of the IT Rules, 2015 ; and the input feedback thereon placed in and urged through public domain.

    It needs no separate emphasis that, enabling , likewise, functionality for online correction /updating of latest address with the Department should consequently facilitate incorporation thereof in 26 AS and the TDS certificates issued by deductor in Form 16A, 16, so on. And in the result, the TDS certificate (s) is ensured to be issued and reached only to the latest address of deductee.

    Its really a welcome move. In the first place to expect property buyer to implement TDS was a wrong step. For each payment installment filling Form 26QB, then Bank challan etc for an non banking person that too a NRI was too much to expect. I received a demand notice for one mistake of filling year 2013 instead of 2014. I was surprised when they wrote in the notice possibility of online correction.
    My question is do I need to pay Demand right a way or can wait for correction to be approved?
