    For the year pertaining to 2011-12 quarterly return was filed. In that return by mistake Or by carelessness ……
    there were about 10 deductees whose PAN Nos. was not available amount was entered in lumsum and filed.
    to be more clear ABCDE1111E tds amount 1520 ABCDE2222E TDS amount 2000. Now total of these 2 i.e 3520 was entered. Now the Dept has sent a letter to the Deductor to file correction notice on complaint received from PAN holder of abcde2222E . Though the deductor is not against doing so. But the software does not allow the amount so entered to be divided except correcting PAN Nos. in such cases.
    Hence I convey the concered to make note of these problems also and do justice. This will avoid unnecessary fighting between Deductor and Deductee and this does waste the hvaluable time of the Income Tax Ombudsman / RBI ombudsman.
