Cancellation/Surrendering of TAN can be done in two situations
CASE 1- Where duplicate TAN has been allotted
In CASE 1, the Deductor has to approach the NSDL for cancellation of the ‘Duplicate–Unused TAN. For this, an application Form, which is applicable for ‘Changes & Correction of TAN’ needs to be used. The same can be downloaded from the NSDL website and is also available with TIN-FCs/other vendors. The application can be made online as well as in physical form. In this way, the ‘Duplicate TAN can be cancelled.
CASE 2 – Where TAN allotted, is not required anymore by the Assessee/Deductor
In CASE 2, the deductor has to make an application with the jurisdictional A.O. (TDS), on a plain paper, requesting for cancellation of TAN and state reasons for such a request.
Cancellation Process of TAN
In case duplicate TAN has been allotted, which TAN should be used?
In case duplicate TANs have been allotted, the TAN which has been used regularly should be used. The rest of the TANs should be surrendered for cancellation using “Form for Changes or Correction in TAN” which can be downloaded from the website of NSDL (http://tin.nsdl.com).
The TAN can be cancelled by following procedure:
1. Go to http://tin.nsdl.com.
2. Download the form “Form for Changes or Correction in TAN”
3. Fill up properly and indicate TAN numbers you want to cancel in point 6 of the Form.
What do we have to do if we have been allotted a duplicate TAN by oversight?
In case duplicate TAN has been allotted, an application may be made for cancellation of the TAN which has not been used in the “Form for Changes or Correction in TAN” which can be downloaded from the website of NSDL (http://tin.nsdl.com) or printed by local printers or obtained from any other source. The application is also available at TIN Facilitation Centres.
