Earlier A Chartered Accountant filing any form or certificate om e-filing website had to validate UDIN also on e-filing website.
However, after the start of new website i.e. e-filing 2.0 people were finding it difficult to update UDIN on e-filing website and hence such relaxation has been offered.
Still on the new website there is no place to update UDIN for filing of Form 15CB.
Also while filing Tax audit report or Audit report in Form 10B CA were mentioning UDIN in Tax audit form but when they were mentioning UDIN separately for validation on e-filing website they were finding it difficult to validate UDIN as there would be some or other error saying that UDIN is not matching or any other error and hence option for validation of UDIN while filing Form 10B was removed later on.
However, it will be very difficult for the professionals if the CBDT ask them to validate UDIN for all the Forms uploaded on e-filing portal during this period.
Further, UDIN should be validated by the authority who wants to check it’s genuineness and not by Chartered Accountant himself. Hence, it would be better if CBDT removes option to validate UDIN on e-filing website by Chartered Accountant.
