Issue of Duplicate TDS Certificate From 16
Where the original TDS certificate is lost, the employee can approach the employer for issue of a duplicate TDS certificate. The employer may issue a duplicate cetificate on a plain paper giving the necessary details as contained in Form No. 16 (Relevant Rule-31(4)). However such a certificate has to be certified as duplicate by the deductor. Further the assessing officer before giving credit of the tax on basis of duplicate certificate is required to get payment certified from the assessing officer concerned and also obtain an indemnity bond from the assessee employee.
