5) In case after transferring the fund from EMD account head to Security Deposit Account, any amount of Security Deposit or part thereof is required to be forfeited due to terms of the tender of any other reasons, such may be transferred to the appropriate revenue head of the government in TR Form No. 70C accompanied by TR-7A challan through e-Billing module of IFMS.
