    Y is Challan Date correction not available in ITR1 of previous years? Y do we always have to go to CPC BLR or to AO for this obvious mistake as the Correct Challan date is always available on 26AS Statement of the Tax Payer?

    Is there any penalty/late fees for Government deductors for late submission of 26Q TDS original returns of FY 2011-12 submitted in FY 2014-15?

      late filing fee will not be levied for the returns filing of quarters before q2 fy 2012-13 because 234e is not in existence for the financial years before 2012-13 q2 .
