    Is there any procedure to fill correction statement for forms which are escapred from reporting & come to notice after upload of return.

  2. Krishan Singla says:

    With due respect I will differ regarding filing procedure by the deductor. The deductor has no option except to submit the declarations electronically. Sub rules 1 and 2 of new Rule 29C is in respect of the deductee and not the deductor. A clarification was also sought from CPC TDS telephonically who confirmed my view point.

  3. poonam lohiya says:
