Good news to taxpayers, No more sending ITR-V by post after income tax filing – Verification with aadhar card introduced.
There is a good news to taxpayers. CBDT recently announced that taxpayers who filed their income tax returns online will no longer have to send the ITR-V paper acknowledgement by post to CPC Bangalore, if they have aadhar card which can be used for verification purpose.
Instead of manual verification, a new Electronic Verification Code has been introduced to verify the e-returns. For that one will have to mention their aadhar card number in ITR form, and tax-payer will get an OTP number on their mobile for verification, which needs to be completed on the website of tax filing.
You get a row devoted to Adhaar card no on page one. in ITR1, it is on row no.
But I dont have Aadhar Card ?
Don’t worry. You can always send the physical documents ITV-V to CPC, Bangalore like you did earlier. You can do that even if you have aadhar card. This new system of verification is just an alternative way for those who have aadhar card.
Govt will implement new system where you don’t have to send the Form to CPC if you have ADHAAR card but for now, follow the same procedure but use AADHAAR in ITR. New implement can be effect as soon as possible.@ Ajit K. yadav
