    Can you please share a picture of FORM-16 Part B, since it is new and I have never seen it before. Do it has a heading same as Form-16A with TRACES on top.
    The problem is my employer is trying to give me non TRACES Form 16 B where the signature is not verified and on repeatedly asking for it they have denied it. Please tell me how we can verify if document is TRACES generated Form 16B

    1. Ajaykonale says:

      The form 16 document Part B will be watermarked with TRACES.

      If your employer has issued part b in non traces format it is acceptable. Since this is the first year and it was implemented very late by department many of the employer are issuing in older format

  4. JAYANTH says:

    I have submitted Form 24Q on 10th May, 2019. Now while downloading Form 16 Part B , it says “Data Available in 24Q Annexure II is not as per prescribed format to generate Form 16 Part B”. So whether I need to File Revised 24Q to submit details as per Ann II or I need to Generate Form 16 B from my TDS Software?.

    This notification/change came after i filed TDS for Q4. I filed on 20/04/2019. Now when i am trying to download form 16 part b, in remarks it was mentioned as “Data Available in 24Q Annexure II is not as per prescribed format to generate Form 16 Part B”. Can you advice what can be done.

    1. Ajaykonale says:

      Since you have not filed TDS return as per the latest format you will not be able to generate Part B from TRACES. You can generate by yourself and issue to the employee.
      Go through the notification Notification number 09/2019 CBDT date 06 May 2019 it describes correctly
