Good News for all deductors ,Now you can upload/file your quarterly returns through www. incometaxefiling. gov.in site free of cost.This facility has been started from 01.05.2016 however to upload return you must have digital signature.
At this time you can upload only regular TDS statement (means original) from assessment year 2011-12 onwards . For filing revised return you have to go TIN-FC as usual.
One more point ,if you do not have digital signature or you want to remain continue with old method i,e TIN-FC then choice is yours,you can file return them also but have to pay fees for it.
This is good move by govt. but we could not understand why they have started this facility on efiling site rather than TDSCPC.gov.in ,where all other facility related to TDS return is already provided ?
