    Filing of my return was during AY 2010-11 By MANUAL SUBMISSION. Even though I have claimed refund in the return after adjustment of Tax Payable against TDS deducted.
    After Computerization of the records by the Department,while the Tax Payable for AY 2010-11 was shown as outstanding TDS was not posted,resulting in Tax Payable was outstanding until AY 2015-16.The same was adjusted by the IT Department rom out of Eligible refund for AY 2015-16with Compounded Interest for the earlier years under Sec 220(2). In spite of submission of rectification and application submitted at Bandra -Kurla Complex personally,NO PROGRESS is seen.Being a senior citizen with meagre monthly pension,I fund it very difficult.The refund expected with interest is around Rs 10000. INSPITE OF THE FACT THAT THEREARE MANY RECENT CIRCULARS BY THE INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT FOR REDRESSING SYSTEM IS SILENT FOR THE THE RETURNS SUBMITTED MANUALLY prior to competerisation of Returns.
