TAN holders need register their TAN at NSDL website

CBDT is about to bring in a new system for TAN holders, wherein every TAN holder has to register his TAN at

From when?
This process is expected to be in place by September / October 2009. However there is no official communication yet from CBDT/NSDL on actual date of implementation.

The process of TAN registration is compulsory for all TAN holders. To make the process easier for deductors, the relaxing time is expected to be a span of 6 months, from the date of implementation. All deductors are expected to complete their TAN registration before this period.

As said, the process runs for a span of about 6 months, during which it will be optional. But thereafter, it is mandatory for every TAN holder to quote their respective TAN registration number in all TDS/TCS correspondences. This includes all TDS/TCS statements, challans, etc.

How to register?
Once the system is in place, the TAN holder would be receiving an information letter to register their TAN at The system is expected to be as under:

  1. Visit NSDL website at go to TAN registration provision.
  2. Enter the TAN, Deductor name, Contact information, Valid email ID, Valid Phone number, etc.
  3. Confirm the authentication by quoting any Provisional Receipt Number of last one year time.
  4. Enter the desired password for TAN registration.
  5. On successful submission of such information, deductor will receive an Unique Registration Number” against such TAN.
  6. Dedutor has to quote such Registration Number in next TDS statement being filed.
  7. Once NSDL receives the TDS statement containing right registration number against such TAN, the Password will be enabled.
  8. Subsequently deductor can login at NSDL website with their registration number.

Registering the TAN at NSDL website will have additional benefits as under:

  1. Easy communication from Department regarding TDS and TCS, as they will have the updated data for active TAN.
  2. Authenticated login area for every deductor.
  3. Subsequent updates to this provision may introduce:
    • Downloading of latest Input file (FVU) for preparation of correction statement.
    • Challan status checking through Login.
    • Status of TDS statements received.
  4. The other actions predicted to appear over here includes:
    • TDS Reconciliation to TAN holder with respect to Section 200A.
    • Easy method for online upload of TDS returns
    • This may also help department to introduce forthcoming Form 24C return upload at this login.

* However, the official information is yet to confirm the benefits of this process.
