    Hello sir/madam i had submitted the challan no 281 january and feb 18 month in this challan assessment year wrongly entered so please suggest me the corrections


    MOST OF THE TIME BANK MAKE MISTAKE, OR EVEN TAX PAYER MAKES MISTAKE FOR PAYMENT OF CHALLAN. 26 AS seen by the assessee at the time of filing tax return.
    if tax payer having bonafide proof , bank should authorised to rectfy. In view of e filing person staying at mumbai filing assress of north east meghalaya, it is difficult to go to Assessing officer for recification.

    I have made a TDS payment in April-2011 but wrongly entered Assessment year 2011-12 instead of 2012-13 can change this assessment year

  4. SATYA PRAKASH says:

    The time limit fixed by the NSDL is not practical as the Tax Payer is generaly know (at the time of filing Income Tax return) mistake done by the Bank. Some times the amount is credited to individual 26AS statement after three months or so.

    Hence there should be no time limit prescribed because mistake can be rectified at any time when it came to the notice of Tax payer. As in the case of fraud the case can be filed after ten years also.
