Tally Licensing Gets Easier with Tally.ERP9

I remembered the day when Mr. Bharat Goenka in a meeting with Tally partners in Delhi admitted that original Tally users users face more difficulty then the pirated users. This difficulty is due to the licensing policy most of the times. Original users have faced difficulty in all versions of Tally whether it is version 6.3 or 9. But as promised the difficulties were reduced and licensing has been done easier.
In release 7.2 of Tally user has to update the license periodically after around 45 days by connecting it to internet. In case the computer gets formatted without surrender of licensing then it has to be reset by sending a request to Tally via mail or on phone.
In rel. 9 of Tally this periodic updation was reduced, but in case of system formatted request had to be sent to Tally to reset the license. With the release of Tally.ERP9 this process has also been automated. Now user can reset the license by himself and he need not to send a request to Tally. Here is the process to do it.

Resetting your Tally.ERP 9 license your self.

Here are the steps which you have t take to reactivate Tally.ERP9 if you are unable to surrender it. Although these steps would reset the license but it is no alternative to surrender the license if you are changing the system or if you can surrender the license.
