    Dear Ms. Moumita:

    Only remedy available for rectification of form 15CA is to approach your CA to cancel form 15CB and generate new form 15CB and provide new number for form 15CA for uploading afresh.

  10. K K SARAOGI says:

    Dear Mr. Mohit Mehta,
    For making any remittance to non-resident, Form 15CA and 15CB is required. You can mention clause of Sec.9 according to which tax is not required to be deducted in case of remittance for import of goods.

    For payment to residents, above form is not required.

  13. Varun Gupta says:

    There is a big flaw on the online form for as on 03 July 2012. Or maybe we have not been able to understand it properly. Hence any help would be highly appreciated. 

    In part 2 of the bank, there is a field that states – “Name of the bank *”, which is a required field, and the user has to select from a droplist. The list has a couple of options. What if the user has to transfer to a bank that is not there in this list. There is no Others option. Let’s say the user wants to transfer to Intesa Sanpaolo. There is no option. There are hundreds of big banks which are not there in this dropdown. Does this mean that an Indian resident cannot transfer to a business or individual who has an account in these banks? 

    Best wishes,
    Varun Gupta

  21. Mohit Mehta says:

    Dear Sirs / Ma’am, Banks are insisting for giving Form 15CA/CB for supply related cases, wherein TDS is not applicable at all. Also Banks are insisting for giving for remittance done to Residents, which is also not required. Please do let us know the Circular or any written approval from competent authority that Form 15 CA/CB is not required for Supply related cases and remittance made to Residents settled outside India.
