This facility is only for Forma 16A and not Form 16.

CBDT has issued Circular No.3 dated May 13th 2011 laying down therein that a common link has now been created between the TDS certificate in Form No.16A and Form No. 26AS through a facility in the Tax Information Network website (TIN Website) which will enable a deductor to download TDS Certificate in Form No.16A from the TIN Website based on the figures reported in e-TDS statement filed by him/them. As both Form No.16A and Form No.26AS will be generated on the basis of figures reported by the deductor in the e-TDS statement filed, the likelihood of mismatch between Form No.16A and Form No.26AS will be completely eliminated.

The CBDT has further clarified the following in the said Circular:

On or after April 1st 2011 the deductor being a Company including a Banking company should issue TDS Certificate in Form No. 16A generated through TIN Central system and which is downloaded from the TIN Website with a unique TDS certificate number in respect of all sums deducted on or after the 1st day of April, 2011 under any of the provisions of Chapter-XVII-B other than section 192.
