Seventy representatives of various trusts, societies and members of ICAI, Jamshedpur chapter attended the seminar.

Ranjeet Madhukar stated that incorrect filing of income details was resulting in unnecessary hassles. “Review notices carefully. If demands for your trusts or societies are of Rs 1,000 or more and if you calculate and find the demand to be valid, pay it or, other wise, after one or two reminders, the amount would be recovered from your bank account. He urged attendees to review their notices carefully. For trusts and societies with demands of even Rs. 1000 or more, notices are being issued. If they believe that the demand is valid, they should pay it; otherwise, after one or two reminders, the funds will be seized from their bank accounts,” stated Ranjit Madhukar. He also advised those who believed that their details were correct but had received a demand to file a rectification application in the office or online so that the demand could be corrected and rectified.
