Sub: Timely issue of Form-16 A to Senior Citizens / SAS / MPKBY Agents

This has a kind reference to Item No.01-06 / 2012 of this union on timely issue of Form-16 A to Senior Citizens / SAS / MPKBY Agents by the Sr. Postmaster in conformity with S B Order No. 20/2010  without insisting upon any applications to avoid customers’ dissatisfaction. This issue has also discussed several times earlier with the SSPOs issuing necessary direction to the Sr. Postmaster, Bhubaneswar GPO  for strict adherence to the instructions laid down in the above order.
But regretfully, due to non-issuance of Form-16 A in due time, the SPM/Postmasters are facing a lot of trouble in giving suitable reply to the customers. The esteemed customers from whom we are deducting TDS are registering their sharp reactions for non-supply of Form 16 A. As a result , unnecessary hot arguments are invited regularly by the staff members for the fault of the DDO.
In this context, we would like to bring the press release dated 10.07.2012 from Press Information Bureau, Govt. of India  to the kind notice of the SSPOs to take stock of the situation.
Press release dated 10.07.2012 from Press Information Bureau, Govt. of India 
Deductors Must Comply with their Obligations to Ensure Correct Credit to Persons from Whose Income Tax is Deducted at Source
All deductors other than Government deductors must file their quarterly TDS statement for the quarter ending 30th June 2012, on or before 15th July 2012 and Government deductors must file their statement on or before 30th July 2012. While submitting their statements, the deductors have to choose correct and relevant form, quote correct PAN against all entries and ensure that correct CIN/BIN is quoted in the TDS statement. Non-quoting of PAN or TAN in TDS statements or delay in filing of TDS statements may lead to levy of penalty.
Filing of TDS statement with correct PAN and CIN/BIN is important because under Rule 37BA of Income Tax Rules, 1962 credit for tax deducted at source is given to the deductees on the basis of TDS statement furnished to the Income-tax Department by the deductor. Filing of TDS statements with incorrect PAN or other details of the deductee would, therefore, cause inconvenience to the deductees (taxpayer).
In case the income on which tax has been deducted at source is assessable in the hands of a person other than the deductee, the deductee must file a declaration with the deductor that credit for the TDS shall be given to the other person and not to the deductee. The declaration filed by the deductee must contain the name, address, Permanent Account Number of the person to whom credit is to be given and reasons for giving credit to such person. The deductor must, in the TDS statement, report the tax deduction in the name of such other person and also issue the TDS certificate in the name of the person in whose name credit is shown in the TDS statement.
TDS certificates for deductions on income other than salary income (Form 16A) for the quarter ending 30th June 2012 should be issued on or before 30th July 2012.
As such, it is once again requested to direct the Senior Postmaster, Bhubaneswar GPO  not to violate the instructions laid down in S B order No. 20 / 2010  so that  the SPMs / Postmasters at grass root level can work peacefully rendering proper and timely service and there by maintaining good customers relationship which is the motto of the Department.
