Income Tax new version 3.8 of the Return Preparation Utility (RPU) and version 4.1 & 2.137 of the File Validation Utility (FVU)

a new version 3.8 of the Return Preparation Utility (RPU) and version 4.1 & 2.137 of the File Validation Utility (FVU) have been released by NSDL. 
As the due date of filing of quarterly TDS statement for third quarter of FY 2013-14 is approaching fast, you are advised to use the new version of RPU to prepare statements and validate the file with new FVU to submit TDS statements, well before due date (15th January for Non-Government deductors and 31st January for Government deductors). 
The new versions features following significant changes from the previous: 

  • Discontinuation of functionality to delete Deductee records: For the purpose of correct reporting, deletion of Deductee rows is no longer permissible in the TDS statements. Accordingly, the delete option available under “Updation mode for Deductee” has been removed from the RPU.
  • Date of deduction should not pertain to previous quarter: The relevant quarter in a TDS statement is determined by the date of deduction. Further, to correct any transaction having a Default, there would be a necessity to report transactions, where date of deduction may be of subsequent quarter. In the light of above, Date of deduction in deductee records should not be that of previous quarter. For example, if the statement pertains to Q3 of FY 2013-14 (i.e. Oct- Dec 2013), then the date of deduction should not be earlier than 01/10/2013.
  • Please note that the challan paid with a specific section code can be utilised for consumption with any other section code in the Deductee rows. For example, a challan with Section Code 192 can be used for any other sections 193, 194, 194A etc. in the challan detail row.
  • Change in the  column header for “Interest Amount” in challan details of RPU: The heading of column no. 20 under Challan details has been changed as “Interest to be allocated/apportioned”. Please note that CPC (TDS) will consume Interest as reported in the above stated column and therefore, it is important to quote the same correctly.
  • Generation of Form 27A by TDS/TCS FVU: An acknowledgement in form 27A can now be generated and printed using the new versions of RPU and FVU.

Some times System Administrators are in fix, when customer (who have deposited their fees e.g. CBSE, AIPMT etc. in e-Post Office) ask for Transaction ID in lieu or complains that Receipt No. Printed on MPCM Receipt is shown as Invalid or  Not accepted by E-Biller’s software on Website.

   It repeatedly shows the error “Please Enter your Transaction ID”   while they are taking Final Confirmation Print of their Application. Concerned SPM is being pressed to execute             e-Payment client, repeatedly,  but in vain.  This not only a tough time for  System Administrator & PM/SPM but also a huge Loss of Revenue to our Department as Private Shopkeepers/Typists incourage applicants to deposit their Fees in Banks only, because Banks provides Transaction ID as per the formate of E-Biller. 

The Simple Solution is :................

           If  E-Biller Website asks, Transaction ID of Nine digits and Our MPCP Receipt No. is 2, then Fill the Column as 000000002 (Put eight 0s before 2 to complete Nine Digits) if Transaction ID is of 13 digits then Fill the Column as 0000000000002 (Put twelve 0s before 2 to complete 13 digits).

  Use it & Share the Interest of Our Organisation.

Expected DA from Jan 2014 - Additional DA from Jan 2014 likely to hike by 11%

The one more and another additional Dearness allowance to Central Government employees and Pensioners from Jan 2014 will be announced in the middle of March 2014. 

This is too early and predict the enhancement in percentage of Dearness allowance with effect from January 2014. The prediction and announcement of this hike make us cool, that the additional DA will jump to 101% and another word, an additional DA would be 11%. 

But, still we have to wait for one more month, that the magic number of AICPIN would be increased by 3% and more..! From the existing level of the AICPIN is now 243, if it becomes 246 in end of December 2013, out prediction will be right…or otherwise certainly we would cross century in total Dearness allowance… 

The table describes the prediction of additional DA from Jan 2014…
