One response to “IDS 2016- How to validate Form 3 and Form 4”

  1. SUBID SHOME says:

    I have made full payment as per Form 2 of IDS 2016 within the alloted time and submitted Form 3 with all Payment Proofs to the Jurisdictional Principal Commissioner of Income Tax. I have not received Form 4 from the Principal Commissioner within 15 days of submitting my Form 3 . My questions are : 1) Is it compulsory for me to receive Form 4 ? 2) ) What is the risk or legal or financial impact on me if I do not receive the Form 4 at all from the Income Tax Dept ?
