    Already banks have outsourced TDS work to professionals and main cause of mismatching is wrong or non filing of PAN of deductee that results in mismatching of tax credit so banks needs to hire technical personnel in best interests of depositors.

    How Traces it will work, it is not clear. Correction form shall be made available on line. After filling and verified by the concerned Deduct-or, NSDL should make correction in 26 AS to remove the difficulties of mismatch.

    Let us hope that the ‘TRACES’ will erase the ordeals of Deductees and Deductors expeditiously.
