3.

Once the file has been prepared as per the file format, it should be verified using the File Validation Utility (FVU) provided by NSDL.
* FVU for Annual Returns: e-TDS / e-TCS returns prepared for FY 2004-05 (Forms 24, 26, 27 and 27E) can be validated using this utility.
* FVU for Quarterly Returns: e-TDS / e-TCS returns prepared for FY 2005-06 and onwards (i.e. Forms 24Q, 26Q, 27Q and 27EQ) can be validated using this utility.

In case file has any errors the FVU will give a report of the errors. Rectify the errors and verify the file again through the FVU.
5.

The upload file generated by the FVU on successful validation is to be furnished to a TIN-FC or directly uploaded through the NSDL web-site.
