If you must be filing Form 15CA and 15CB till now, you must be knowing that up till now only online mode was available for submitting Form 15CA and 15CB wherein the assessee had to first assign Form 15CB to a Chartered Accountant in case where he has to submit Part C of Form 15CA and had to first submit some basic details before assigning Form 15CB and he had to do this for each Form 15CB.

However, now looking at the new procedure laid down by the Income tax department as mentioned below along with the offline procedure it can be seen that Income tax department has again adopted the old procedure wherein the assessee has to just assign/ add a Chartered Accountant only once and the CA will submit Form 15CB first and then based on that the assessee shall submit Form 15CA – Part C.
The detailed procedure is as under:
