Will I get Form 16 from my employer even if there is no TDS?
Form 16 is a TDS certificate & it is issued only when there is tax deducted. Therefore, if there is no tax deducted, the employer is not required to issue Form 16 to you. The purpose of Form 16 is to serve as a proof of tax deducted and deposited on your behalf.

Can I file ITRs offline instead of e-filing?
From this year, it's mandatory for all taxpayers to file ITRs electronically, except for super senior citizens whose age is 80 years or above in the previous year (2018-19). Taxpayers with an income less than Rs. 5 lakh in the previous year were allowed to file a physical return, but this option has now been withdrawn.
