The e-TDS/TCS FVU setup file (e-TDS/TCS FVU.exe) comprises of three files namely:

  • TDS FVU Readme.rtf: This file contains instructions for setup of the e-TDS FVU.
  • e-TDS FVU Setup.exe: This is a setup program for installation of FVU.

“Please download and replace the existing folders with the latest version of FVU and RPU folders available at TIN website. Replacing only the FVU Jar file in the old folder may lead to the rejection of statement at the time of submission of the file.”
