    Dear sir,
    First of All Sec 234E is of Fee For Late Filling of TDS Return and not for Late fee. The other section is 200A which is of Interest on Late Tax deducted and deposited in Govt A/c for that you might have receive a notice for Interest on late Payment u/s 200A.

    Other thing is you have received a notice on 31.12.2013 and as per the boundation of your notice you need to deposit the said Interest/Late amount till 31.01.2014.

    Sir there is no way out of this problem. So, I will suggest You to Kindly Deposit the Amount and Revise the Return before 31.01.2014.

    It will be a Pleasure for me to help you.
