    The bank in which I have a savings account gave me the FORM NO. 16 A for only the 4th quarter. Even after asking for the first three quarters TRACES they have not given. Is there any method of getting the same?

    Y is it such a pain to get the Form 16 from previous employers especially when there is no TDS deduction from recent previous employer? Y doe the IT Dept not make it mandatory for the Income Computation of Ex-Employee to be downloadable from Traces where the Previous Employers have to upload before a month atleast from the due date?
