TheCentral Board of Direct Taxes (‘the Board’) has received several petitions fromdeductors/collectors, being an office of the Government (‘Government deductors’),regarding delay in filing of TDS/TCS statements due to late furnishing of theBook Identification Number (BIN) by the Principal Accounts Officers (PAO) /District Treasury Office (DTO) / Cheque Drawing and Disbursing Office (CDDO).This has resulted in consequential levy of fees under section 234E of theIncome-Tax Act, 1961( ‘the Act’).

2. The matter has been examined.In case of Government deductors, if TDS/TCS is paid without production ofchallan, TDS/TCS quarterly statement is to be filed after obtaining the BINfrom the PAOs / DTOs / CDDOs who are required to file Form 24G (TDS/TCS Book AdjustmentStatement) and intimate the BIN generated to each of the Government deductorsin respect of whom the sum deducted has been credited. The mandatory quoting ofBIN in the TDS/TCS statements, in the case of Government deductors wasapplicable from 01-04-2010. However, the allotment of Accounts OfficersIdentification Numbers (AIN) to the PAOs/DTOs/CDDOs (a pre-requisite for filingForm 24G and generation of BIN) was completed in F.Y. 2012-13. This hasresulted in delay in filing of TDS/TCS statements by a large number of Governmentdeductors.

In exercise of the powersconferred under section 119 of the Act, the Board has decided to, ex-postfacto, extend the due date of filing of the TDS/TCS statement prescribed undersubsection (3) of section 200 /proviso to sub-section (3) of section 206C ofthe Act read with rule 31A/31AA of the Income-tax Rules, 1962.

Therefore, it is clarified that the above extension is a one timeexception in view of the special circumstances referred to above.
