The following slides explains The possible problems in your TDS return, How to rectify them and How to avoid such Inconsistencies in future
What is Inconsistency ? The inconsistency is between the details submitted by you in eTDS statements and details submitted by banks. This may or may not be because of wrong details furnished by you. It can also happen for several other reasons.
How are Inconsistencies identified? First, the details regarding deposit of TDS/TCS made by you is compared with the data given by banks. Challan Identification Number (CIN), TAN and TDS amount as given in your TDS return is compared with the corresponding details given in the challan details provided by the bank. Once these are matched, the PAN ledger of each deductee is credited with the TDS/TCS as provided in your return provided the PANs of the deductees have been given by you in the return. Feedback is given to the deductor where challans in the statement are not matched.

How can I prevent these Inconsistencies in my future returns The deductor should use the same TAN to deposit tax in the bank and to prepare the TDS/TCS statement. In case the deductor has multiple TANs, only one TAN should be used consistently, the other TANs should be surrendered to ITD. The deductor details, i.e TAN, Name, Address of deductor should be correctly stated in the statement filed.
Challan details (BSR code – seven digits, challan serial number – upto five digits, date of tender) mentioned in the statement should be same as those stamped by the bank on the challan counterfoil. Verify the challan details from TIN website (www.tin-nsdl.com) before filing the statement to prevent errors.www.tin-nsdl.com The Challan amount mentioned in the statement should be same as the total amount deposited in the bank. Valid 10-digit PAN of deductee should be provided
Challan Status Enquiry Challan Status Enquiry displays the details pf challan deposited in the bank. There are two types of views; CIN based view and TAN based view. CIN based view: Details of any particular challan can be viewed TAN based view: Details of all challans deposited in the banks for a given TAN during a specified period can be viewed.
Quarterly Statement Status Quarterly Statement Status displays status of the quarterly statement submitted by the deductor. The deductor can also check the status of the challans as well as the count of valid PANs in the statement
