Other Important Points:

1. Electronic Verification Code: Electronic verification code means a code generated for the purpose of electronic verification of the person furnishing the return of income as per data structure and standard specified by the tax department. The EVC will be a 10 digit alpha numeric number.

2. The government has asked tax payers to mention their aadhaar number in the tax return. However, do note that mentioning your aadhaar number does not relieve you of e-verification of your tax return. Your return must be separately e-verified by generating Electronic Verification Code (EVC)

3. One EVC : One EVC can be used to validate one return of the assessee only irrespective of the assessment year or return filing type (original or revised)

4. Total Income less than Rs. 5.00 Lakh or  no refund claim: Where the total income as per income tax return is less than Rs. 5.00 Lakh or where there is no refund claim, the verifier can generate an EVC on the efiling website through efile menu. In that case EVC will be sent to the registered email id and mobile number of assessee provided in the filing website.

Where total income is more than Rs. 5.00 Lakh or claiming refund, you will not be able to eVerify your return generating electronic verification code using registered email id or mobile Number. In such cases, verification can be done using other methods of verification ie net banking or Aadhaar linking.

This option may further be restricted to assessee based on other risk criteria that may be determined from time to time

    I have uploaded my returns but not able to e-verify by any of the means specified. What should I do?

  • Ravindra K

    I have uploaded the IT returns(ITR-V) and after uploading, immediately I found that there are mistakes. So, I have n’t did any e-verification for Original Filing. So, it’s status is Pending for ITR-V/E-Verification. But, on the same day, I corrected the mistakes and did the Revised filing. And also did the e-verification successfully. It’s status is Successfully e-verified. But, I am getting mails from Income Tax CPC to do the verification for Original Filing as it is pending. But, it has mistakes and that’s the reason why I have filed Revised Filing and e-verified the same. Will the revised Filing gets ITR processed status in this case? Please let me know.

    • simplifiedlaws

      Hello Ravindra

      Please do eVerify original return filed by you. CPC will process only latest revised return. I am not sure whether CPC will be in a position to process revised return without e-verification of original return. Please note that it is compulsory to e -verify or sending ITR V to CPC on all the return filed by you.

  • Rohan Todakari

    Sir, I have filed my return online & verified it with aadhar. My income is under five laks but refund amount is Rs.1990. Is it necessary to send ITR-V to income tax department or it will be automatically refunded to my registered bank

    • simplifiedlaws

      Where there is refund claim, the verifier can’t use EVC generated on the efiling website through efile menu. In that case, you have to use option of aadhaar linking or net banking to generate EVC. Alternatively you can send ITR V to CPC, Bangalore within 120 days of filing return

  • Lupita

    Could you please elaborate on option#2 “I do not have an EVC and I would like to generate an EVC”?

  • Sarfaraz

    after this, do we need to sign the document and send to banagalore as we did earlier?

    • simplifiedlaws

      No need to send ITR-V, if your return is verified through Electronic verification code
