The tax department offers an online facility to view and enquire about challan status. By visiting the official portal of TIN-NSDL, taxpayers can monitor their challan deposits and therefore, can verify the details concerning their taxation related payment. TDS challan status can be tracked on the online mode via two views – TAN view and CIN view.
In the TAN view mode of challan tracking, the TAN number serves as the identification number for challan tracking. For any tracking of transactions related to TDS deduction and remittance against the same, TAN is mandatory to be mentioned by the deductors.
In the TAN view mode of challan tracking, the information which can be fetched includes the CIN (Challan Identification Number), Minor and Major Head Codes and the mode/nature of the payment. The deductor has to mention the TAN, and CTD (Challan Tender Date) and these details can be viewed.
In the CIN mode, the challan number serves as the identification number. And the deductor can view all the relevant details.
