Respondent: Mr. Anil Kaushik CPIO’s representative through VC
The CPIO’s representative stated that the appellant is a postal agent whose TDS for the year 2010-11 was deducted but for want of PAN number the same could not be remitted to the Income Tax department. It is, however, seen from the appellant’s RTI application dated17/08/2012 that she has given her PAN number (viz. BFJPP7809H) and has requested for issue of form 16A.
The CPIO is directed to ensure that the appellant’s TDS for the year 2010-11 is remitted forthwith to the Income Tax department and form 16A issued to her expeditiously. The FAA/DPS, Jodhpur Region should ensure compliance of this order. The appeal is disposed of accordingly.
