How to correct Income tax Challan wrongly made
I have made an error while making the payment through challan, how can it be corrected?
Comment : In case you detect any mistake in the Challan after payment of the amounts you may approach the concerned bank branch within 7 days of payment for necessary correction in the challan.
If the changes are to be made after 7 days of payment, kindly contact the Assessing officer for the correction.
