The objective of this note is to assist customers of E-Business Suite (Release 11i and Release 12) to understand the implications of the data structure changes introduced by Central Board of Direct Taxes through National Securities Depository Ltd, (NSDL).

The structure for File validation Utility to be used for filing eTDS and eTCS returns was revised.

Customers are required to:

  • Classify software vendors using the new attribute at supplier site level
