Limitation of Software
:However it has few drawbacks like you can not import old FVU file for correction ,only consolidated files or earlier saved file can be imported ,further no database can be saved in this program ,No 27A form generated etc .But main feature is its free and comply all the mandatory requirement and tested by Govt agency .so Download ETDS return software from tin nsdl now.
