    Dear CA Vijay Chopra,
    You can do it from the ITR 4 of our income tax website without any help of the software.
    Ensure each page of the filled in form is properly aligned with the help of the ‘page break preview option’ and save the same as a PDF document.When you print the saved in PDF doc,the alignment would be proper.
