        • Mahendra

          Dera Mr. UmeshKumar
          Thanks for your response However I believe CA’s should take the advantaged of the updated software. Still so many CA’s are using Windows 1998, Tally 4.5 or 54. which have bee become outdated software as on Date. I am not sure How CAs are able to do business using the old aged technologies. The only reason may be that they never tried an updated software.

      Tally 7.2 is a dead product and no one can do it ?
      Either you still enjoy 7.2 as it is life time without spending money for up gradation or upgrade your software to take advantage of the ever changing business and technology.
      Choice is yours but no one company can offer life time free upgrades.

  • Mahendra

    @shilparaghunath Tally 7.2 is a dead product! All support has been discontinued. This product had served more then its value to Tally user. To obtain all benefits of latest technology, Statutory Changes, I would recommend you to upgrade your software to Tally.erp 9. Since you are a licensed user of the software, you may upgrade it to Tally.erp 9 at a lessor price. If you need our assistance in upgradation, then just drop your reply here and we will help you for the same.
