    Gopinath
    Very unfortunate, Income tax India have made Sahaj form with much difficult to do.
    Small tax payers will have to get sahaj printed too much cost. If one form
    spoils while writing, again he has to pay more money to get the form printed.
    Is it the way government helping small employees and small tax payers.

  8. jayesh says:

  10. S.Santhanakrishnan, Chennai says:

    It is foolish to blame our Indian bureaucrats because they will devise strange and illogical forms/methods for simple matters. Otherwise they will lose their unique quixotic identity in the fast developing world.

  11. KA Salian says:

    Can someone from the tax department think simplre?

  12. Noshir says:

    These new Forms are just not for Aam Aadmi for whom they have been designed. The different colour scheme and the strict specifications make them non workable for small Tax Payers. Why can’t they make them in plain Black and White single page Returns. Surely, it is not Rocket Science to design them.

  13. venkat says:

    this means I cannot printout the black and white forms in excel format and use it.

    where will these colored blank forms be available easily.,
    I am in Chennai.

  14. Narendra Dev says:

    Since sahaj form is not in a position to use, because there is restriction from govt. side to use standard form, i.e. coloured form. Therefore their is no need to download the requisite form the site. Hence once again starting to black mailing of the from to the end of govt.due to non availability of form.

  15. A M RAY says:

    It is not at all SAHAJ

  16. J.K.SINGH says:

    SAHAJ Form seems to increase the PROBLEMS of common man,as it cann’t be purchased/downloaded from net.
