    I have received notice U/s 234E and I have paid challan for the same. While preparing correction statement with RPU 3.7, I have added challan showing the same in Fees column of Rs.4200/- and selected Minor head as 400. But while validating I am getting error message as “T-FV-3159 Invalid Value – Allowed value for Minor head code are either 400 or 200”. Pls Guide.
