Is this correct?
It is been done.
I know "It has been done" is correct.
Can we use "is" and "been" simultaneously.
correct forms of "to be done"

"Is" and "has/had been" are inflected forms of "to be". So they don't exist at the same time for the same function. But the below is not the same as what I mentioned above.
What has been is of no importance.
These words...is am are were was etc are called the "be auxiliary" and any of them can go with "being"...is being,am being,was being etc.However,only has,have and had(the have auxiliary)can go with 'been"
Note:Always be mindful of polysemous contractions ie contractions capable of more that one interpretation.eg "It's" could mean either IT HAS or IT IS....It's being done...(is)...It's been done(has)
WHAT HAS BEEN can also be written as WHAT IS BEING.WHAT HAD BEEN can read WHAT WAS.This is possible because BEEN in the above example is not used as an auxiliary verb.It is lexically used....What has BEEN...the BEEN may be replaced by EXISTED,HELD,REMAINED etc...What has existed ...or...what exists
