    Additional load to cross check between 26 AS & AIS.

    My grievance is that when errors are pointed out in AIS, a beautiful message appears indicating that an email has been sent to your Registered email address and a SMS to your Registered Mobile No. NO SUCH THING HAPPENS AND ERROR REMAILS FOR MONTHS AND EVEN AFTER THE YEAR HAS CLOSED.

  2. Kanchan Mala verma says:
