Inconsistencies in the TDS / TCS statements

      No Comments on Inconsistencies in the TDS / TCS statements

When you file your TDS / TCS return, first the details  regarding deposit of TDS/TCS made by you is compared with the data given by banks. The data is uploaded by banks on the  basis of the TDS/TCS challans received by them. For this purpose, the Challan Identification Number (CIN), TAN and  TDS amount as given in your TDS/TCS return is compared with the corresponding details given in the challan details provided by the bank that has accepted the tax. (CIN consists of the BSR code of the branch where you deposited the tax, date on which you deposited tax and the challan serial number which have beenstamped on the counter foil of the challan given to you). Depending on this, different types of inconsistencies creep up in the returns.

Once these are matched, the PAN ledger of each deductee is credited with the TDS/TCS as provided in your return provided the PANs of the deductees have been given by you in the return.

The types of inconsistencies are as below: 


If all the CIN details in the TDS / TCS return match with the corresponding details provided by the banks, the challan is shown as matched as the payment claimed to have been made by you is also validated by the bank

Match Failed

In this case CIN given in your TDS / TCS return is found in the bank data. But the TAN and / or amount as given in your return against this CIN do not match with the TAN and / or amount given against this challan by the bank.

Match Pending

In this case, the CIN as given in your statement is not available in the CIN details provided by the banks.

Count of Missing deductee PAN

If you have not provided the PAN details of some of your deductees, the count of such cases is provided.

Count if deductee PAN not present in ITD database

If some of the deductee PAN provided by you are not present in Income Tax Department (ITD) database, the count of such cases is provided.

Impacts of the inconsistencies are as below:

  • In case of inconsistency, there would be no posting in the PAN ledger of the deductee with the amount of tax deducted/tax collected on his behalf. He may, therefore, have difficulty in proving the TDS /TCS claimed by him in his income tax return.
  • If challans claimed in the TDS/TCS returns could not be matched completely with the data given by the banks, you may have difficulty in proving to your TDS assessing officer that you have actually deposited the TDS/TCS deducted by you.

Subject: Tax deduction at source on the deposits in banks in the name of the Registrar/ Prothonotary and Senior Master attached to the Supreme Court/ High Court etc during the pendency of litigation of claim/compensation-reg.

Section 194A of Income Tax Act, 1961 (the Act”) stipulates deduction of tax at source (TDS)  on interest other than interest on securities if the aggregate of amount of such interest credited or paid to the account of the payee during the financial year exceeds the specified amount.

2. The Board has received references expressing difficulties in implementation of provisions of  Section 194A of the Act in a situation where in the course of the proceedings before Supreme Court/ High Court/ any other court or tribunal (hereinafter the court”), one or more than one litigant (hereinafter the depositor) is directed by the court that a specified amount (hereinafter deposit”) be deposited in the bank either directly or through the court in order to protect the interest of litigants.  Such deposits (usually time deposits) are kept in the bank in the names of Registrar/ Prothonotary and Senior Master or any other name as per the order of the court.  Difficulties are faced in making TDS on the interest periodically accruing on such deposits/ time deposits and about the person(s) as deductee who is entitled to TDS certificate in Form 16A.

3.1 The matter has been examined in the Board and it has been decided that, subject to para 4 below, this circular shall be applicable to cases where one or more than one litigant is directed by the court that a specified amount be deposited in the bank directly or through the court. The bank shall in accordance with the provisions of the Act, deduct tax at source on the interest accruing on the above mentioned deposit(s) as per existing procedure and at the rates in force. The certificate of deduction of tax shall be issued by the bank in the name of the depositor  If more than one person has been directed to deposit any specified amount, the amount of TDS shall be corresponding to each such depositor for the portion of interest accrued in its respective share in the total amount deposited and TDS certificates shall be accordingly issued by the bank.

3.2 At the time of making deposit of the amount ordered by the court, the depositor(s) shall submit a prescribed declaration with the court for record purpose and to facilitate the administration of TDS. The Registrar/ Prothonotary and Senior Master or any person authorized by the court will pass the information furnished therein to the bank concerned for TDS properly in the name of the depositor(s) in accordance with the provisions of the Act.

3.3 Some of the instances covered by this circular are:

a. In the course of appellate proceedings, the court directs an insurance company (the depositor) to deposit a part of compensation awarded by Motor Accident Claims Tribunal. This amount is deposited as Time Deposit in a bank in such name as per the directions of the court, the credit of TDS on interest accruing on such deposit will be allowed to the Insurance company which has made the said deposit. P-2 -2-

b. The Court while deciding the cases of land compensation directs the authority concerned (liable for making payment of compensation) to deposit any sum in time deposit in any bank, the TDS on time deposit shall be in the name of the authority making deposit, if such authority is an entity liable for charge to Income Tax on its income. In case the deposit in the bank is by Central or State Government no tax will be deducted.

c. The court adjudicating upon financial dispute during pendency of proceedings direct any party(ies) to deposit any amount as security in time deposit, the TDS on interest accruing on such deposit will be in name of the depositor irrespective of the fact that at the directions of the court such time deposit has been drawn in the name of the officer of the court or joint name or any other name.

4. The above procedure shall not apply to:

(a) any deposit in the bank held or dealt by the court or any other person appointed by the court in the capacity of being an administrator or receiver or any authority of similar nature; or

(b) any deposit which has not been made by any specific depositor but has arisen due to attachment made by the Court; or

(c) the cases of representative assessee” within the meaning of section 160 of the Act.
