Sir/Madam,


             This Directorate has been requested to provide a facility to map the  collection from TDS u/s 195 pertaining to International taxation i..e. collection received under subhead 195 and  minor head TDS (200) to a particular  Assessing Officer (AO) decided by the respective computer centres. In order to provide this facility following screen has been provided to the TAS Supervisor of the Computer Centre to map the subhead with  Assessing Officer (AO).  After the mapping, the OLTAS collection received from banks having sub head 195 and minor head 200 can be assigned to the AO mapped irrespective of the AO mapped with the TAN quoted on challan.

2.         In order to provide these functionalities, OLTAS module has been modified. It is requested that necessary instructions may please be given to the concerned officials to implement this modification by taking following actions:
  1. Take two sets of full backup;
  2. down load and execute the following patch (no user should be logged in at that time) from 128.91.16.155 (directory /home/oth/exe/oltas_inst_8 userid/password : oth/tin#oth) OLTS1R08_8i.fmx (for Oracle database 8i) or OLTS1R08.fmx (for Oracle database 7.3.4).
  3. All the files available in the above directory and executables may be copied in the file server. Files with the same name should be renamed/backed up.

3.         It has also been observed that  data coming from banks on OLTAS, many time contains  data entry errors pertaining to wrong minor head, assessment year etc. In automatic/ batch postings such erroneous entries also get posted  from OLTAS to IRLA/IRLD. Therefore, it has been decided to stop the process of automatic posting and batch posting of OLTAS data to IRLA/IRLD with immediate effect till the data quality on OLTAS reaches  the desired level. Separate efforts are afoot to improve data quality/integrity in coordination RBI and Principal CCA CBDT. The facility for case by case claiming of challans from OLTAS by Assessing Officers based on PAN and/or CIN will remain available. A separate facility will be provided shortly for validation checks on OLTAS data to screen out and/or correct conflicts between minor head and Assessment Year due to data entry errors in OLTAS.


4.         It is requested to give feedback latest by 7th January 2005 whether the OLTAS Instruction No. 8 has been implemented or not. This Instruction has to be implemented by all computer centres. It may  please be ensured that OLTAS Instruction No. 7  has been implemented before this Instruction is implemented.


 
                                                                                                
                                                                                                Yours faithfully,
