Account Management
The registered Organization will be identified in the TIN central system by the Organization ID allotted to it. The registered Organization will also have an administration ID (Admin ID) allotted to it. The Admin ID will not have any upload rights. Functionalities of an Admin ID are mentioned below:
Creation of New Users
Admin ID can create new users. New users have to be associated with either the DSC with which the Organization has registered or a new DSC. In case a new user created is associated with a new DSC, then the DSC will be authorised by NSDL and only then user will be able to login the TIN central system with that DSC. It is recommended that different DSCs be used by the Admin ID and the users. The DSCs should be password protected and preferably stored on a smartcard. Users created by Admin will have rights to upload electronic statements and view upload details.

Association/Disassociation of TAN(s) with the Organization 
TAN(s) for which TDS/TCS statement will be uploaded online through the online upload of electronic statement facility have to be associated with the Organization. Only TAN(s) belonging to the registered Organization can be associated with the Organization: for example ABC Bank and its branches. TANs of different ABC Bank branches can be associated with ABC Bank as an Organization. NSDL will verify and authorise the association of TAN(s) with the Organization. Only after authorization by NSDL TDS/TCS statement for that TAN can be uploaded through the online upload of electronic statement facility. From menu 'TAN/PAN Administration', select 'TAN-ORG Mapping' option. From the dropdown 'Select the Module', select 'TDS'. , Thereafter, enter TANs to be associated with the Organization. Indicate own TAN in the 'Own TAN/PAN' field and also select TAN in the option provided. 

Similarly TAN(s) can be disassociated with the Organization. No authorization is required from NSDL for disassociation of TAN(s).

Association/Disassociation of TAN(s) with a User
Only those TAN(s) which have been associated with an Organization and duly authorised by NSDL can be associated with a user. It is mandatory to associate an authorised TAN to a user to enable furnishing of its TDS/TCS statement through the online upload of electronic statement facility. An authorised TAN can be associated to multiple users or to only one user. Similarly, TAN(s) can also be disassociated with Users. Selection of Metering Model and Allocation of Amount
