  1. For ALL the good things stated of TRACES will they leave any "traces" of TAX REFUND CLAIMS?
    Does this TRACES have any DIRECT LINK with your ITO to submit any complaint/REFUND CLAIM?
    Else as usual we have to go from pillar to post for our REFUNDS.
    In fact there is NO EMAIL ADDRESS in TRACES available for any query and direct answers from the ITO concerned.
