I worked for a top MNC for 3 and half years. After moving out of the company I requested them for form -16 of the year when i joined the company. Dropped an email to their exit help desk, talked to them many times but no positive outcome. Hence planning for legal steps. Could anyone please help me on this?

The Income-Tax Act instructs that employers should issue the TDS certificate on or before June 15 every year, right after the financial year comes to an end when tax deduction happens. Failing to issue Form 16 to employees after TDS has been made can result in consequences where the employer will possibly face a penalty of Rs 100 every day until the certificate is issued.
Probably you can complain to your Tax assessing officer that so and so company where I worked and TDS was deducted is not issuing Form 16.

Most of the Data appearing in Form No. 16 is reflected in Form No.26AS. Why can't you use this data from Income Tax website against your PAN Number. This is sufficient for filing IT returns.
For what purpose you would require Form No. 16 apart from above?

For filing IT returns, you have to upload part B of Form 16 which indicates salary and deductions under sec 80C etc.
Form 16 is required to file IT returns correctly.
Employer is mandated to provide form 16 and he needs to comply with IT act.
