One thought on “Form 15CA and Form 15CB for Buyers Credit Repayments”

  1. How to presume that in a year remittance would exceeds Rs.50 lakhs.
    Therefore, if part A is filled for first few remittances on assumption that total remittance would be less than 50 lakhs, which eventually exceeds rs.50lakhs by the year end then :
    1) what would be the consequences?
    2) Whether penalty of Rs.1 lakh for each filing of 15ca where we have given details in part-A would be levied? and
    3) Whether the remittance would include principal and interest or only interest?
    Your early comments on the above issues would be highly appreciated.
