    In online e-filling there is a box for salary. What should be the actual amount to put here? Is it gross salary or the salary after deducting P-tax(In 26AS no trace of deducting P-tax). I am cofused, if I put the gross salary including P-tax(My case Rs.1800/-) then in which column should we deduct P-tax otherwise for my case Rs. 180/- + edu cess will have to be lost. No actual documents is with me of deduction of P-tax.

    Yes, you will have to enter the amount less the P.Tax (Rs. 1800/-). They will calculate the Taxes after deducting the P.Tax as it comes under state jurisdiction.

    Yes, you are right. You are to put Gross Salary after deducting P.Tax and Exempted Amount u/s 10 [for example, HRA Exemption u/s 10 (13A)], if any, in the Income Details section.

    The two figures are mismatched. The different is my P.Tax deduction of Rs.1800/- . Should I go for rectification request or this is correct? TDS 1 was auto generated so I couldn't edit it.

    Actually, this has been happening to many of the education department of West Bengal. In spite of two or three deductions the TDS section of the IT website shows only one count which is incomplete. It may be because of the delayed deposits from this end. I rather suggest you to wait for a couple of days or even weeks to get the calculations sorted out.

    Yesterday I got form 16 issued by ADI office but there is no traces of PTax deduction . So what should be done?

    Form 16 is about the deductions you have made at source; it is not count of the deductions the IT Department has received. To file the ITR you must have the Form 16A which sums up the tax deductions for the current financial. There you will have the tax deductions.

    The B1 column shows 362980 and the in the tax deduction column it shows 364780. It may be because of irregularity in the proof of the savings/insurance under various sections. First, ensure whether the deductions under sec 80TTA was entered or the deductions were provided the rank F (finalised) through form 26A (tax credit form).

    That is because PTax of 1800 rupees (150 per month). But there is no traces in form 16.

    It may be that your P Tax was not deposited properly through proper channel. If it be the case you have to recheck the entire procedure. It really is a serious mistake on the part of deductor. Contact your tax deductor immediately and make him aware of the error. Hope, your salary acquittance shows the P Tax deductions.

    Yes in salary acquittance the deductions for Ptax are clearly shown but no traces in form 16.

    It means, the the deductions would have been overlooked at the deductor's office by chance. But this needs to be rectified with immediate effect.
