Tax

I left the company on 12th Mar,  I was told full and final settlement will be paid after 45 days. I have so far not received it(it will be cleared on Oct 31 only). But, I have got provisional form 16 with full and final settlement. I have paid taxes without including final dues. Do I have to pay extra now?

Salary income is assessed on accrual basis. Hence, you can offer the terminal benefits as salary income in the year in which you left the company, even if you have not received it and claim TDS as per 26AS.  

There is no need to offer the settlement amount again when it is received, as it was already offered in the year in which it became due.

As the company has also not deducted TDS and you also did not receive income, offer it on receipt basis in the year in which you receive the settlement money. Though it is not entirely appropriate, this will be less cumbersome than other ways of regularizing your tax situation.

In the present case you can declare the final settlement on receipt basis.

If you have already filed the return then you can revise the same after you are clear about your details regarding TDS and clarity about other details and rectification of all errors.
