Download RPU/FVU utility software from on your computer.

Prepare your TDS details in an excel format for ready reference. It is easier to fill in the RPU, then.

Open RPU software, select 24Q - Regular, feed in the following details

1) TAN number,

2) PAN number

3) Financial year

4) Company if ts a private limited company

5) Name of the company

6) Address of the company

7) email of the company and phone number

8) Contact details of the authorized person filing e-TDS returns ie director or accountant


Go to Challan details

Select 92B under section

Enter data of TDS amount, cess if any, interest if any, others if any

Enter date of tax deposited, BSR code (the bank code shown in the challan), the cheque number, challan number, select 'yes' or 'no' whether this is under book entry or actual payment,


Go to Annexure

Select challan no from the list given.

Enter data of TDS amount, amount credited (paid to employee), Serial no, of employee, PAN of employee, Name of employee, TDS amount, date of deduction, etc


Go back on the first page, press "Save" and save it in a folder as per your accounting system, press "create" (asking to validate the file) press the second browse button, and select the file you just saved, and press ok. If there are no errors in the file, the message will show file validation completed successfully.


Now you can either copy the file onto a pen drive or a CD along with a hard copy of 27A (summary of what you have just entered in 24Q) and submit it to nearest NSDL TIN facilitation centre with a nominal fee of Rs. 30/-. They shall give you an acknowledgement receipt, which will bear the token number, and this token number will be written on the form 16 to be given to the employee, after April 2012. If possible, take a printout of each 24Q quarterly RPU file, because the 4th quarter RPU file for 24Q is cumbersome. 


Thanks for reading.
