An important message has been displayed for the deductors on the TRACES website regarding downloading of conso file.
The displayed message has been given below:
Attention Deductors: Your request for download of Conso File will not be accepted in case there are unmatched challans in the selected statement. Please match all challans through Online Correction before submitting request for Conso File.
This means that if there are any unmatched challans in the TDS statement filed by the deductor, the correction statement for that TDS statement cannot be filed for such regular statement for errors such as PAN Error, Short deduction due to incorrect reporting of certificates, interest and late fee payments etc. The correction statement will be filed only when all the challans in the statement are matched.
This may arise a question that how will the unmatched challans be matched in absence of download of conso files for correction of statements.
For this purpose, CPC (TDS) has provided an utility called Online Challan Correction through which any mismatch in challans in the statements filed by the deductors can be corrected through the online mechanism on the CPC (TDS) website itself.
