I will wait for some more time anyway, but just wanted to know the procedure, just in case.
Also if you could please let me know where can I get the email addresses of people whom I should copy on my email, that would be of great help too.
Thanks a lot.

If your ex employer has deducted tax at source (TDS) then only they are obliged to issue Form 16.
Under Section 203 of the Income-Tax Act, 1961, anyone deducting tax at source is obliged to issue a certificate of TDS(Form 16 or Form 16A) in evidence of tax having been paid pro tanto by the assessee.
If your ex employer has not deducted any tax at source (TDS) (or your income is not taxable at all) for whatsoever reasons then employer is not bound to issue Form 16.
In cases where Form 16 is not issued, Form 12B is submitted as a proof of income under section 192(2).

Please make it in hard copy form. You can mark copy to your Income Tax Officer under whom your files come or with whom use you to file your returns. But do it after waiting for some more period because you are required to file the returns by the end of July 2011 only.
