Hello everyone,

You might be facing below issue while you are requesting for online Correction on TRACES for FY prior to FY 2011-12

“Online correction on TRACES is not enabled for the requested statement.

Kindly file correction through NSDL and the subsequent correction can be filed on TRACES “

The reason behind this error is, earlier to FY 2011-12 TDS returns database was maintained with NSDL and from FY 2011-12 onwards, TRACES – TDS CPC is maintaining and processing TDS Returns, some of the data prior to FY 2011-12 was not migrated into TRACES – TDS CPC.

For the period earlier to FY 2011-12, TRACES does not have copy of the returns filed in it’s database. So, it will not allow us to file correction statement online as there is no database of original return filed for respective FY. So, If we file correction statement now through NSDL TIN FC, then data will be migrated into TRACES and subsequent correction request can be filed on TRACES.

And Addition/deletion of Challans through Offline RPU utility has been disabled,Addition/deletion of challans can be done through Online correction only.So, for FY earlier to FY 2011-12, first we needs to file Correction statement through NSDL TIN FC and once it is processed successfully we can request for Online correction and Challans can be altered accordingly.

Steps to file Correction Statement:

1. First Step is downloading the CONSO file from TRACES website.

You can download the CONSO file from Statements/ Payments > Request for Conso file > Select FY, Quarter and Form

2. Now, open this CONSO file in RPU and make some minor correction in Address and file correction statement through TIN FC or Income Tax portal.

Note: While placing a request for CONSO file, if you see the below error, it means No Regular statement TDS Return has been filed for that period and you have file to file a Fresh TDS Return for that period.

No Data Available. Please check after 3 working days from the date of filing of the statement at TIN-FC

    Hello Sir
    Please let me know, correction through NSDL means corrected file reuploaded on TAN basis income tax than we will able to make correction on traces?

    1. B Vinay Reddy says:

      Hi Shruthi,
      Yes you are correct.

      First, you have to file the correction statement with NSDL.

      You can file with the NSDL by visiting the nearby TIN Facilitation Centre or alternatively you can also upload the FVU file on this website mehekdigisign.co.in/

      It will take approximately 1 week to process the TDS Return, after which you can file a Request for Correction on the TRACES site directly.

      Still, if you’re facing any issues, please contact me on WhatsApp

      Thanks

Kindly file correction through NSDL and subsequent returns can be filed on traces) I will much appreciate as i am struggling with the same. thanks

    1. B Vinay Reddy says:

      Hi Anthony Fernandes,
      First, download the CONSO file from TRACES, and prepare a correction statement in NSDL RPU/third-party software if you’re using any. At this stage you cannot add challan details, simple make corrections in the Address or Mobile number and generate an FVU file.

      You can file the TDS correction statement by visiting the nearby TIN Facilitation Centre or alternatively you can also upload FVU file on this website mehekdigisign.co.in/

      It will take approximately 1 week to process the TDS Return, after which you can file a Request for Correction on TRACES site directly.

      Still, if you’re facing any issues, please contact me on WhatsApp

    We need to file correction statement for FY 2011-12, for that we need conso file, for downloading conso file we need provisional receipt number. We have lost provisional receipt number. Please suggest us to get Provisional Receipt Number.

    1. B Vinay Reddy says:

      Hello Kavitha garu,
      I hope your issue was solved by now.

      If you lost PRN number, then by registering DSC on TRACES site, you can download CONSO file without PRN Number.

      Please let me know if you have received PRN number by any other means.

      Regards,
      B Vinay Reddy

    Hi, very good article. I have a question related to TDS. Consider the following situation.

    I am an employer, I deducted TDS of one of my two employees “Mr A” in December 2012 amounting to Rs 4000 and filed the return on time successfully only to find out later in 2018 that the PAN quoted in the return actually belonged to “Mr B”, the second employee. Meanwhile “Mr A” had already filed his return on time and claimed a refund of the whole amount.

    However “Mr B” wants the mistake to be rectified as the money belongs to him.

    Now the questions are:

    1) If I revise the return today, will the amount of TDS of Rs 4000 show up in Mr B’s 26AS.
    2) If yes, will B be able to claim the same as a refund. Let us say he can, how will he revise his own income tax return assuming the limit of section 154 is exhausted.
    3) What about the amount that Mr A already had claimed as a refund earlier. shall a demand be raised against him?
