  1. Any lapses on the part of DEDUCTORS and CPC are tolerated but not on the part of the VICTIMS...Deductees like me who have not been able to upload a REVISED RETURN due to blatant delay by IOB CHHEDANAGAR in issuing FORM16A and for Posting their Deduction in 26AS AFTER the ITO has assessed and sent the refund of the Previous amt deducted.
