Following are the consequences for delayed filing of TDS returns. 1.There is a penalty provision of Rs 100 per day, for delayed filing of Quarterly statement under TDS or TCS. 2.The filing and thereby consequences are treated separately for Form 24Q, 26Q, 27Q and 27EQ.
My question is has anybody come across such situation that a penalty has been imposed for delay in filing TDS return.

It was a technical mistake on the clients part that details of form 15G/H received during the year was to be submitted. Along with that by mistake Form 16A was sent with those forms and that is how the department came to know of it.
It was submitted by mistake by the client
In practical life everyone issues tds certificate after due date, mentioning date within due date.
