You might be facing below error while requesting for Online correction on TRACES for FY prior to FY 2011-12.
"Online correction on TRACES is not enabled for the requested statement. Kindly file correction through NSDL and the subsequent correction can be filed on TRACES."
The reason behind this error is, earlier to FY 2011-12 TDS returns database was maintained with NSDL and from FY 2010-11 onwards, TRACES – TDS CPC is maintaining and processing TDS Returns, some of the data prior to FY 2011-12 was not migrated into TRACES – TDS CPC.
For FY earlier to FY 2011-12, TRACES does not have copy of the returns filed in its database. So, it will not allow us to file correction statement online as there is no database of Original return filed for respective FY.
So, If we file correction statement now through NSDL TIN FC, then data will be migrated into TRACES and subsequent correction request can be filed on TRACES.
And Addition/deletion of Challans through Offline RPU utility has been disabled,
Addition/deletion of challans can be done through Online correction only.
So, for FY earlier to FY 2011-12,first we need to file Correction statement through NSDL TIN FC and once it is processed successfully we can request for Online correction and
Challans can be altered accordingly.
I Hope this article is helpful for your all.
