Diwali Gift to all Tally Users : use Tally extension Free of cost

Image via Wikipedia

Why extensions? Why are these not part of the product?

Adding a feature to the core product is not a simple decision. Unless a feature is adequately broad-based and appeals to a larger audience, we do not typically build it into the product. However these do meet specific needs and this is our endeavor to make the more commonly needed extensions available.

What is needed for an extension to work?

The process to install these TDL (Tally Definition Language) extensions is best done via the Control Center. Each extension comes with a detailed user manual as well.

Do these extensions work with Tally 6.3/7.2/8.1/9?

No. These are for Tally.ERP 9 only. Tally 8.1/9 users are eligible to move for free to Tally.ERP 9 (limited time offer), and Tally 6.3/7.2 can upgrade at a low price (write to us at sales@tallysolutions.com or send TALLY by SMS to 56677).
