Filing ITR

Instructions for filing ITR through official website

  1. Register and login to website
  2. Click on Quick e-file ITR (or use Prepare and Submit online ITR option under e-File menu).
  3. TAX DETAIL page : Check if tax details are already populated as per your form 16
  4. INCOME DETAIL page :
    • Income from salary (B1) column should have amount mentioned in “Income chargeable under the head ‘Salaries’ (3-5)” column of your form 16.
    • Deductions mentioned in your form 16 (Deductions under Chapter VIA) should also be filled in deductions on this page.
    • If both of above is done then value mentioned in column Taxable total income (C2) should match with Form16, and ideally columns D12 & D13 (Amount payable & Refund) should be zero because you would have already paid exact tax amount.
    • Income from other sources : Mention interest earned on saving accounts.
    • You can request deduction on above income under 80 TTA upto 10,000 Rs (basically if your savings account earning is less than 10,000 Rs then you need not to pay any tax on this)

  • Please note this post is useful & sufficient only if you have simple form 16 & your complete tax is already paid.

CMR Marketplace Day

Mozilla Hyderabad conducted Marketplace Day event at CMR-IT College. This event was planned long back and as we approached near the event date, Mozlando got us some news about Firefox OS. With this news of Firefox OS being pivoted to Connected Devices, we tweaked the event to focus on IoT instead of Marketplace.

In the event we (myself and Dyvik Chenna) covered following topics –

The event was a great fun – we played games, learned new things and interacted with many amazing people there. I would like to thank each one of the participants to help us make this amazing. Feel free to get in touch with us for any queries. Special thanks to Sistla Madhukar and Raghavendra Abhilash to take this initiative and organise this event, you and your club is really doing great. Many congratulations to your club for winning FSA Club of the month award, you guys really deserve this.

Be unique YOU, not everybody else!

Friends, I have, so far, met 21.5 million youth in a decade’s time. I learnt, every youth wants to be unique, that is, YOU! But the world all around you, is doing its best, day and night, to make you just “everybody else”. Now the question is whether you want to be you or everybody else. We like everybody else is convenient at the first glance but not satisfying at the long vision, the challenge therefore is that you have to fight the hardest battle which any human being can ever imagine and never stop fighting until arriving to the destine place, that is you arrive at unique YOU.

Friends what will be your tools to fight this battle, what are they: have a great aim in life, continuously acquire the knowledge, work hard and persevere to realize the great achievement.
