After e-filing ITR: ITR-V,Receipt Status,Intimation u/s 143(1)

We often consider filing of the tax return is the end of the whole story. But picture abhi baki hai mere dost. There is misconception that once the tax return has been filed electronically, work is over until the next tax return filing deadline. One has to send ITR-V if income tax returns are filed online without digitial signature, get acknowledgement of Reciept of ITR-V from Central Processing Centre (CPC) Bangalore, then wait for intimation from Income Tax Department under section 143(1). This article covers these in detail.

Sending ITR-V

For ITR for Assessment Year 2015-16 or Financial Year 2014-15 Electronic verification of ITR has been introduced which has made sending ITR-V optional.  Our article  E-verification of Income Tax Returns and Generating EVC through Aadhaar, Net Banking explains the process in detail.

On-line filing can be done with or without digital signature. But, for those filing it without using the digital signature, it is mandatory to submit the ITR-V form generated on-line, to the income tax officials at Bangalore, within 120 days of filing of the return. The process of return filing is complete then.
ITR-V stands for Income Tax Return–Verification , sample form is shown below.
  •  ITR-V is generated when you file your I-T return online—without using a digital signature.It is a one page document, pdf file.
  • You also receive it as an acknowledgement email from the Income Tax Department in your inbox, after you file your return electronically. 
  • They can also download the ITR-V from the website from My account ->My Return after login into it
  • This ITR-V also contains the acknowledgement number of electronic transmission and the date of the transmission as an evidence of filing for the benefit of the assessee.
  • The password of ITR V is your PAN number in lower case, followed by your date of birth in DDMMYYYY format , for example for Mr Sharma with PAN number AJSPD8693E and date of birth as 20-Mar-1976 the password would be ajspd9693ed20031976
  • ITR-V should be printed in dark black ink and clear to read.
  • You have to sign the copy of the ITR-V in blue ink .Your signature should not be on bar code of the Form. Bar code and numbers below the bar code should be clearly seen.
  •  In case the return was prepared by a Tax Return Preparer (TRP), the particulars of TRP be also filled and this verification form be countersigned by the TRP.
  • You do not need to send any supporting documents along with the ITR-V. Just the one page signed ITR-V.
  • Do not use stapler on the Form ITR-V. Do not fold this signed ITR-V.
  • Enclose the same in an A-4 size white envelope. Send the envelope to the CPC through speed post or ordinary post within 120 days from the date of filing. You cannot courier the ITR-V.
  • Inside a single envelope, you can send several ITR-V forms.
  • The envelope should be send to Income Tax Department CPC Post Box No.1, Electronic City Post Office, Bangalore-560100, Karnataka. You cannot submit ITR-V  anywhere else in India

Remember, if you miss submitting your ITR-V within 120 days, your e-filing will be considered invalid. It will be considered that you have not yet filed your return. You then have to file a revised return, get a new ITR-V and submit the same within 120 days.  So far Income Tax Department has been extending the last  date for submission of ITRV but don’t procrastinate or postpone sending your return.

Recently Ministry of Finance has proposed a new way of submitting income tax e-returns for those who file on-line income tax returns without any digital signature.Please note that this is just a proposal till now and it would not be applicable for this assessment year 2013-14 in any way. SUBMISSION OF ITR V IS MANDATORY FOR E-FILING IT RETURN FY 2012-13 (AY 2013-14)

Acknowledgement from CPC

Upon receipt of ITR-V, Central Processing Centre (CPC) Bangalore dispatches an email acknowledgement. It should reach within a month of sending ITR-V to Bangalore. You can check the status of whether ITR-V is received by CPC or not in following ways:
  • The e-mail from CPC is sent to the email ID mentioned in the ITR.  If you don’t get the acknowledgement, check you SPAM folder.
  • By filling details of your PAN and assessment year or by filling the e-filing acknowledgement number on the ITR-V Receipt Status tab under Services section on the e-fling website as shown in picture below.
  • It is also available on the income-tax web site,, you can login in your account and check Views and Forms under the tab My Account
  • You can also call the CPC call centre number 1800-4250-0025 (from 9am to 8pm) to enquire about the status of e-filing.

 Processing of Income Tax Return

After the income tax return is processed another mail is sent to the assessee, which is called Intimation under section (u/s) 143(1). The intimation under section 143(1) is sent by the IT Department in response to tax return filed by the tax payers. The intimation as the name suggests intimates the tax payer about, any tax and interest payable or if the assessee is eligible for refunds after providing all the necessary adjustments relating to tax deducted at source, advance tax paid, any tax paid on self – assessment or any other amount in the nature of tax or interest.

  • These intimations will be received through email to the Email address provided in filing income tax returns online and would also be sent by Post
  • The intimation shall be sent before the expiry of one year from the end of the assessment year in which the income was assessable. So Intimation for FY 2012-13 or AY 2013-14 will be sent by
  • Intimation letter is protected with password. To open document, enter your PAN No (In small letters) and Date of Birth/ Date of Incorporation in ddmmyyyy format.

It states any difference between the amount of Income, Deductions and Income Tax Payable, and TDS or Income Tax paid as stated by you in your return with respect to that computed by your Income Tax Officer u/s 143(1).If you look at the notice you will see that there are two columns: 
a) As provided by taxpayer in return of Income and 
b) As computed under section 143(1).

If there is no difference in both columns i.e details provided by the taxpayer and as verified by the Income Tax department match, then this notice will serve as final assessment of the return with nothing to be done on part of the taxpayer. Our article  Understanding Income Tax Notice under section 143(1) explains it in detail.

If tax paid is less than what is computed by Income tax department then this intimation becomes Notice of Demand u/s 156. For example, if Income as disclosed by taxpayer is Rs 6,00,000 but the department computes his income as Rs. 6,50,000, then there will be shortfall of tax paid. If he feel that computations by Income Tax Department are correct then he will have to pay such tax If he thinks that the demand is wrong then he must prove his case with necessary procedures.

If the tax paid is more than the income computed by the department then such intimation will have a refund and such refund will be granted to the taxpayer. Refund will either be sent by cheque or credited into the bank account mentioned in Income Tax Return.

This Intimation u/s 143(1) should be treated as completion of assessment income tax returns for the year unless there is tax due from the tax payer.

Keeping Income Tax Records

Even if your income tax returns are processed successfully you need to keep all the paper work. Since legal proceedings under the income tax act can be initiated up to six years prior to the current financial year, you must maintain Income tax related documents at least seven years. Our article Paper Work A Necessary Headache discuses it in detail. The records that you need to keep are

  • Form 16, Form 12 B
  • Filed returns
  • Tax paid
  • Tax deducted at Source (TDS),Form 16A, 
  • Tax exemption documents,
  • Bank account statements
  • Gift deed
  • Intimations from Income Tax Department (Soft copy email etc) and hardcopy.

    Hi, Excellent article. Very useful indeed.
    Do kindly help address a query regarding completion of assessment when there is demand under u/s 156.
    I have paid demand as per Demand u/s 156. Now after payment am I expected to revise ITR for the related AY & resend to Bangalore? Or is the ITR closed (completion of assessment) once demand is paid online.

  2. Charlton Dsouza says:

    Hi Team,

    I just filed my return online via Quick e-file ITR (FORM ITR-1) however in Income from salary/pension I incorrectly mentioned the amount of my Total Tax Deducted instead of total income received, after realizing that I immediately filed my return again following the same procedure however in Personal Information (Return Filed under Section) I selected the option 17- Revised 139(5) and selected Revised option in whether revised or original section after which i was asked to mention the original Ack no & date.

    All details were correctly entered after this and the ITR was submitted, now I have 2 ITR return forms which are successfully e-verified. Please let me know whether this is acceptable and whether I have done it correctly.


  3. Praveen says:


    I have filled ITR for AY 2013-14 in Dec 2014 but failed to send the same at CPC. I have sent the ITR now. So can I expect the acceptance of my ITR by CPC now. Do they consider it even after due date for sending ITR? Please reply. Thanks.

      e-verification of ITR for FY 2015-16 is over by 31st January 2016 . Now you can only send ITR-V through like earlier times.
      ITR-V is a one page document, which you need to sign in BLUE INK and send via ordinary post or speed post. You cannot courier the ITR-V.

      You do NOT need to send any supporting documents along with the ITR-V. Just the one page signed ITR-V.

        • CC says:

          I believe you have done it right. No problems. Now in future your original return will always be shown as e-verified & only the revised ITR will be moved ahead. (In IT website)

        • bemoneyaware says:

          Yes, whatever process has been followed by you is correct.
          Original return will be replaced by Revised return filed.

          Actually What rule says is:

          In case you have filed your Income Tax Returns before the due date of filing of Returns mentioned u/s 139(1) but later on if you got realized that, there was remained any omission or mistake in filing your Income Tax Return, you can file a revised return under section 139(5) with stating correct particulars.
          Revised return of Income Tax u/s 139(5) can be filed by an assessee any time before the expiry of 1 year from the end of the relevant assessment Year or before the completion of assessment (which is earlier).

          So, What you have done is correct.

          • Charlton Dsouza says:

            Thank you Sir.

            The only thing I am worried about is last time after my EVC was successfully e-verified it was accepted by the the very next day however now it has been 3 days and I am still stuck on the same step.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      Did you do e-verification or did you send the ITR-V physically. if Physically it seems you have not signed the ITR-V
      You can call up CPC Bangalore to find if you can still send ITR-V. Last date for ITR-Verfication was 31st Jan 2016

    I am in US so do we have any option to send ITR V document soft copy, if so how do we get email id.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      No, this year Govt had started e-verification for which one need not send the hard copy of ITR-V.

      You can send it to relative in India who can speed post it to CPC.

    Can you please help on my ITR status. I have done the e-verification on 26th August. Still it is showing ‘ITRV Received’. Below are the details. Can you please check and help me on it.

    12th August- Return uploaded
    17th August – ITRV Received
    26th August- EVC Accepted
    26th August – Successfully e-verified.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      It’s ok Gopal. No need to get worried.
      Processing of ITR takes time. It also depends on which ITR you filed?
      You can CPC Bangalore at 1800 425 2229 for clarification from 8:00am to 8:00pm from Monday to Friday

  14. The reason written there is Unsigned ITR-V, nothing else is written there.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      What is there?
      If reason is Unsigned ITR-V that means you sent the ITR-V without signing,
      If the 120 days from the date of e-Filing haven’t elapsed, simply print out a fresh copy of the ITRV, sign and send it back to CPC within 120 days from the date of e-Filing.

      If 120 days have passed If ITR V is rejected because the same is unsigned, illegible, mutilated, bad quality or not as per specification it is deemed to have been not filed and the return is to filed once again followed by submission of ITR V .

  15. ashwani says:


    I have e-filed the return and revised return on same day. Verified both electronically. EVC has been accepted for both. The revised return has been processed and the intimation recieved with no demand and no refund. However, in the intimation, the ITR type is getting displayed as original though the acknowledgement number is that of revised return. Is this fine? [Note – In the dashboard, it is showing the status as processed against the revised return]

    • bemoneyaware says:

      It should be ok. But You can call CPC to verify.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      You can check your refund status on the TIN-NSDL website by simply entering your PAN (permanent account number) number and the assessment year. The assessment year is 2015-16 for financial year 2014-15
      Your Refund status is ‘Refund determined and sent out to Refund Banker’: This means your refund claim has been accepted by the income tax department and has been forwarded to the refund banker for processing. Taxpayers can view status of refund 10 days after their refund has been sent by the Assessing Officer to the Refund Banker. The refund banker service will give you the latest details of your refund that may include speed post tracking, error messages in case of incorrect bank details etc

      Steps to take – Wait for 10 days for the refund to be credited. Do check your status again if refund is not credited

    Hi Kirthi,

    I have filed my TDS return on 31/08/15 for ITR1 and for the year 2015-2016 and sent it through speed post. I have checked the speed post status as delivered in speed post site after ten days But I have not received any mail regarding the receipt status of the ITR V since then. I have checked in my mail(Spam also) and also checked for the status of the receipt in the incometax efiling site, but the status is showing as “Return uploaded pending for E Verification”. I have called the income tax tollfree numerous times who were not responding and coming busy all the time. So after waiting for about a month, I have done the e verification through netbanking on 28/09/2015 hoping that this might be the problem. But still now I haven’t received any kind of document receipt mail or SMS and the status of the ITR V is now showing as successfully e verified and nothing else. So can you please help in finding out any other ways about the receipt status, I doubt now whether the document is received by the CPC dept or not. Please help!!

    After sending the ITR through email, I got a message that the ITR has been recieved and I recieved an email from that “This is to inform you that the income tax department has successfully completedothe account audit for thisequarter, and you are qualified2for a refund” and the refund was lower than what I filed for.
    I am not sure whether this is a valid email or not. Could you confirm?

It’s been 13 days now(today is 25-Sep-2015) but I have not received any acknowledgement or any message from them, no status is showing in my income tax login also.
    My CA said that they might have misplaced the document, I need to submit the document again.

    How can they do this, It is such a critical department that needs to be handled very carefully. Do I need to courier my document again to Bengaluru?

    i have filed the itr 1 all correctly but still i got the intimation just because tds credited and tds liable got difference with just one rupees. but in itr v it doesn’t shows to be as payable it’s nill. Do i have to revise it.

  30. Neelanjana says:

    I had sent my ITR-V form by speed post to Bangalore office two weeks back but have not received any acknowledgement from their end on my mail id or phone number. I even logged into my account and the status is still “Return Uploaded, pending for ITR_V,E-Verfication”. How long it typically takes for the status to be updated or receive an acknowledgement from them? Do I need to send it again?

    • bemoneyaware says:

      There is nothing to worry.
      CPC Bangalore dispatches an email acknowledgement on receipt of ITR V. It should reach within 4-5 days after sending ITR-V to Bangalore.
      If your ITR-V is not been marked as received after 10 days, you can call 1800-425-2229 – Govt of India helpline from 9AM to 8PM

        My refund got declined saying that the account number is incorrect..when I am going on the website to fill the refund re issue form its says that “no refund has been returned” do I need to wait for 24-48 hrs and than apply or whats the procedure please advise

  31. Aastha says:


    I uploaded the ITR on 19/08/2015 and e-verified my ITR for year 2015/16 and then status changed to EVC accepted, but today I got a message that my ITRV rejected and reason is Unsigned ITR-V. Can anyone please explain me the exact reason. Do we have to digitally sign the ITR even if it is verified through Aadhar?

    • bemoneyaware says:

      Your case is surprising. And even if they have to reject ITR because on Unsigned ITR-V it should come after 120 days.
      Login to e filing, Click My Account->View Forms and Returns
      click on the acknowledgement number, you’ll be able to see the reason for rejection.

    So please help me what to do and when will be my money refunded is there anything that I still need to do

    Please reply me

    • bemoneyaware says:

      Congratulations for doing your income tax return.
      A tax payer should send the signed copy of ITR-V to the CPC through speed post or ordinary post within 120 days from the date of filing. Once the CPC receives the ITR, it usually sends an email or an SMS acknowledging the ITR.
      So you have received the SMS.
      Give some days and check status again
      If you haven’t received the acknowledgement, download the acknowledgement from the income-tax web portal by logging in through your online account. The same will be available under ‘E-filing processing status’ under the tab ‘My Account’

      The receipt can also be checked by quoting your PAN and assessment year or by quoting the e-filing acknowledgement number on the ‘ITR-V Receipt Status’ tab under ‘Services’ section on the e-fling website,
      You can also call the CPC call centre number 1800-4250-0025 (from 9am to 8pm) to enquire about the status of e-filing. For rectification and refund, the number is 1800-425-2229.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      You have to check if it’s reflected in form 26AS. Typically the steps to pay demand notice are:
      The outstanding tax demand can be paid online as below:

      Log in to and click on “My Account” option.
      Cross-check the outstanding tax demand amount by clicking “Outstanding Tax Demand” link.
      Click on “E-Pay Tax” to pay the taxes online. This will take you to “Tax Information Network” (TIN) website.
      On the new window, select “Challan no /ITNS 280” option.
      elect “ Income Tax – Other than companies” option. Key-in all the required details like your PAN number, Assessment Year (AY, this you can find on the first page of the Intimation), Address, Email-id and mobile no.
      Select “ Tax on Regular Assessment (400) under “Type of payment” section.
      Select your preferred bank through which you would like to make the tax payment.
      Click on “Proceed” button and re-confirm your details.
      Next you will be taken to your Bank’s Login page. Login to your bank account with your credentials.
      In the next page you will be asked to enter the Demand amount. You may find different options like income tax, surcharge, Education cess, Interest, Penalty and Others. To find out the type of demand you can check the Intimation document

      • bemoneyaware says:

        There are two ways to check the status of your payment i.e., whether the Income Tax department has received your payment or not. Try checking the status after a week from the date of your demand payment.

        You can visit Go to “Outstanding Tax Demand” and check the status. If your payment is received by the IT department then you will find message No records found.

        You may also check the status of your tax demand by clicking on “View Form 26AS.

    Hi Kirti,

    I just filed my TDS return for the year 2015-16 today, I also verified the EVC through net banking, Now what do I do? Is there anything else I require to do?
    I am unaware of all this stuff because I am filing returns for the first time, Kindly let me know. Also after how many days would i receive my returns in the bank details provided?

    • Charlton Dsouza says:


      Can you kindly reply to my query??

      No you don’t have to do anything else. As you have e-verified through net banking ball is in CPC court now.

        Thanks for your reply, by when would I receive the amount?

        And what happens if you file an incorrect ITR? Kindly reply

        • bemoneyaware says:

          Within a year you would receive refund. these days it is actually pretty fast.

          If you have filed your return and you realise the mistake before CPC processes it you can revise it.
          If you think it’s ok but CPC does not they will inform you of error in calculation, as explained in Processing of Income Tax Return in the above article


    I have filled my ITR form for AY 15-16. This is the first time I have filled IT return. I have a fixed deposit from which the total interest generated in last fy was 38000 for which 3800 tds was deducted. But I forgot to mention this in the ITR. As my total income even including the interest is less than 250000 I should be eligible for 3800 refund. What should I do now? Should I file another return or wait for communication from cpc.

    • bemoneyaware says:

      You should revise your return. As explained in our article How to Revise Income Tax Return (ITR)
      If an individual has already filed the income tax return and subsequently discovers any omission or wrong statement , he can re-file the return with necessary modification. This re-filing of the income tax return is referred to as Revised Return.
      The revised return can be filed before the expiry of one year from the end of the relevant assessment year or before the completion of assessment, whichever is earlier, As per section 139(5) of Income Tax.
      Go to part of ITR with Filing Status , for example Income Details in ITR1 shown in image below (Fill Excel ITR form : Personal Information,Filing Status)
      For Whether original or revised return select R-Revised.
      For Return filed under section select Revised 139(5).
      Enter the E-filing acknowledgement receipt number from the ITR-V Which you would have got after filing the original return.
      Press Submit button on completion of data . You will get a new ITR-V marked as revised return.

          on 30/07/2011. ITR V was also sent .cpc recorded the date of receipt of ITR V as 02-12-2011 and rejected the ITR V
          With reason filed after due. Revised return was filed on 29/12/2011 and ITR V was sent for revised return.
          Revised return has been processed . Intimation received under section 143(1) shows revised return as original return
          and interest under section 234 A . I am unable to understand for what reason interest under section 234 A has been charged when self assessment tax was paid/original return was filed within due date. Please guide me how I can take up
          the matter with income tax authorities

          • bemoneyaware says:

            Sir date of filing return is important not date of receipt of ITR-V.
            When you filed revised return did you file it as new return or as revised return.
            If you file revise return you have to mention original return date and acknowledgement number.
            If filed as original return the earlier return is nullified.
            But you can meet your Assessing officer and discuss it.

          • Jagat Narain Gupta says:

            I confirm that revised return was filed as revised return only and acknowledge no /date
            of original return was duly mentioned in it. But intimation received from CPC shows it
            as original and has also charged interest under section 234 A for the reason best known
            to them. In my opinion no interest under section 234A was chargeable as self assessment tax was paid before 31-07-2011 the due date for filing of return. Please advise me whether I should file a rectification request or lodge a grievance with cpc

          • Jagat Narain Gupta says:

    • Kirti says:

      Sir when dud you file your returns for AY 2013-14?
      After successful filing of your Return – you are required to send your ITR-V to CPC Bangalore. ITR-V has to be sent within 120days of your e-filing.
      Unfortunately, unless you send your ITR-V, the department does not consider your return as filed. Therefore, in the eyes of the Income Tax Department no return has been filed.

            Some clarifications:
            You cannot file a Revised return if the Original was filed post due date (Belated)

            Legally, a return can be revised any number of times before the expiry of one year from the end of the Assessment Year OR before the completion of the assessment by the Department; whichever event takes place earlier. For Filing returns for AY 2013-14 , last date for assessment year was 31 Mar 2014. And one year after is 31 Mar 2015.

  69. Deepika Pandey says:

    I filed ITR for FY 2013-2014 and by mistake I entered AY 2013-2014 and so I received notice u/s 143(1) saying TDS mismatch, as obvious I was not working before that and this was the first time I earned taxable salary, so there was nothing as per 26AS for AY 2013-2014.
    I realised my mistake but now I can’t find a way to rectify it. If I try to file revised ITR for FY 2013-2014, they say that deadline is over. Please suggest where can I send the application quoting my mistake? Also how can I find and contact jurisdictional AO so that I can process my application.
    And how to file ITR when you do not have any income?

    • Kirti says:

      Sad to hear that Maam but if it’s any consolation you are not the only one. Many have done this rookie mistake.

      A question: Did you file your return for AY 2014-15 as per income tax records?

      Short ans is Hire a CA or Income tax lawyer to help you through the maze.

      Long ans:
      As per income tax records you filed ITR after the due date, 31 Jul 2013, so you cannot revise the return.
      You can know your jurisdictional officer at jurisdictional AO

  70. Deepika Pandey says:

    I had filed ITR for AY 2013-2014 instead of AY 2014-2015 by mistake, as I filed ITR for the first time and was not working in the year FY 2012-2013, I received notice u/s 143(1) quoting TDS mismatch. How can I rectify this mistake? Where can I inform that I applied for the wrong assessment year? I have no clue how to find jurisdictional AO and how to contact him? if I try to file revised ITR for the AY 2013-2014 stating that my income was zero in the period, it says that deadline is over. How can I rectify? Please guide.

  71. SRILATHA says:

    I have filed retutn on 05-02-2014 for the assessment year 2012-13 and ITR V received by CPC Banglore on 06-04-2014.Now my status is showing Retrn recived after due date.In this case what i have to do.

    One more doubt that I have not filed the returns from 2013-14 onwards. Can i file returns of all the years (i.e 2013-14,2014-15 and 2015-16.

    • Kirti says:

      Tax rules permit assesses to file their returns pertaining to two preceding financial years, even after the expiry of the respective annual deadlines.

      So the due date for filing return for AY 2012-13 was 31 Jul 2012. So any return filed after due date will show up as Retrn received after due date.So the message is correct.
      You don’t have to do anything. The Income tax office will process your return and update you.
      Yes you can file returns after the due date.
      For FY 2013-14 or AY 2014-15 you have missed the March 31, 2015 deadline as well. But you can still file return by March 31, 2016. However, this will be treated as a belated return. There is no difference in the filing procedure before or after the deadline. However, you will have to mention that the return is a belated one in the tax form. There could also be a Rs 5,000 penalty for late filing (after March 31, 2015) depending on the discretion of the assessing officer.
      For FY 2014-15 or AY 2015-16 forms are not out yet so you can file return till 31 Aug 2015.

    I filed my ITR for AY 14-15 on 01.05.2015, Should there have been any interest U/S 234A?

    • Kirti says:

      Yes Sir. ITR1 should have calculated it for you.
      Section 234 A : Interest payable for default in furnishing the return of income
      Where the return of income for any assessment year is furnished after the due date or is not furnished, the assessee shall be liable to pay simple interest at the rate of one per cent for every month or part of a month for the period commencing on the date immediately following the due date upto the date of furnishing the return (in cases where return is furnished after the due date) or upto the end of the Assessment Year (in cases where no return is furnished) on the amount of shortfall in total income tax payable by the assessee.

      In simple words, interest @ 1% per month is payable on the amount of income tax paid after the due date for filing of the return.

  75. vijay says:

    I have intimation from Income tax department stating that tax deducted for AY 2008-09 are not getting reflected and i suppose to pay the tax amount again which i have already did.
    form 16 for 2008-09 indicates that tax has been deducted every month.

    currently i don’t have ITR Acknowledgement for the same AY and also i have lost the first communication mail regarding to this, can you guys help how to proceed on this and get it rectified.

    • C.A. Sweta Singhania says:

      Hello Mr Vijay,

      U can again download your ITRV from incometaxindiaefilling web site.
      Download 26 AS for A.Y. 08-09 and have a look weather the tax deducted is reflected there. If yes send the scaned copy to CPC Bangalore via mail. If it is not reflected there than do file a rectification request online under section 156. Ur work would be done for sure

  76. presly says:

    Hi, Yesterday i got Intimation U/S 143(1), when i checked in the refund amount i found a mismatch of Rs.17362. I found all the data matching except in the TDS.I have uploaded all the data based on Form 16. Following is the data from the intimation which I got.
    GROSS TOTAL INCOME – 5,03,195 | 5,03,195
    Deductions under Chapter VIA – 80C – 65,000 | 65,000
    80E – 47,499 | 47,499
    TOTAL DEDUCTIONS UNDER CHAPTER VIA – 1,12,499 | 1,12,499
    OTAL INCOME AFTER DEDUCTIONS – 3,90,700 | 3,90,700
    TAX ON TOTAL INCOME – 19,070 | 19,070
    Rebate u/s (87A – 2,000 | 2,000
    Tax Payable after (Rebate) – 17,070 | 17,070
    TOTAL INCOME TAX LIABILITY – 17,582 | 17,582
    TDS – 65,000 | 47,640
    TOTAL TAX CREDIT – 65,000 | 47,640
    RFUND AMOUNT – 47,420 | 30,058
    Kindly help me to understand this.

    • Kirti says:

      First column refers to what you have filled in and second column refers to what Income Tax office could find.
      So for example both you and IT agree that your Gross total income is 5,03.195 and
      Deductions under section Chapter VI-A is 65,000.

      As you right pointed out there is mismatch in TDS amount.
      You have claimed Rs 65000 while IT found proof for 47,640.

      I would recommend you checking your Form 26AS to find how much TDS was deducted.
      It has happened that Form 16 and Form 26AS does not match.
      Please try to get the TDS amount corrected.
      Do reply to Income tax letter on time.

      Our article Understanding Form 26AS explains Form 26AS in detail
      and Viewing Form 26AS on TRACES

      Best of Luck

      • presly says:

        Thanks a lot for the quick reply. So when i cross checked i found 65000 was Deductible Amount & 47,640 was Tax Payable amount. That was a mistake happened while filing. So What should I do now? Do I need to re-file??
        Also currently I’m facing another issue with my refund is, on 31/07/2014 I have uploaded return , on 28/08/2014 I’ve received ITRV Receipt, on 18/12/2014 I got a message saying” ITR Processed refund determined and sent out to Refund Banker ” and on 28/12/2014 I got the message ” Refund unpaid/failed.submit request for refund-reissue, Reason – Incorrect A/C No.” ,So on Feb 2015 , I’ve raised a rectification request to correct that, but I got a mail from IT dpt saying to contact my jurisdictional officer. I went to his office in Bangalore but from the help desk itself they told, since its been filed online they can’t do anything,it can be solved only via customer care call. When I called again to the customer care they saying “ignore the mail…your rectification is in progress” . So right now I’m totally in a confused state of procedure. What would be the right move @ this stage???

        • Kirti says:

          Hello Sir,

          You can check your refund status at TIN NSDL site check refund status
          As per Income Tax Rectification Manual(Pdf) Pg 4
          In case of change in Bank Account details OR Address Details, a Rectification should NOT be filed. You can LOGIN and GO TO My Account –> Refund Re-issue request and raise a request for change in the Bank Account/Address details (in case of refund failure).
          Try doing it and wait.

          Hope it helps.

          • presly says:

            Thnx a lot… Kirti
            I have done that request long back .When I checked in Refund-Reissue Request tab ,its showing the request is under progress.Meanwhile I had submitted a request in grievance tab. yesterday I got a mail which says
            ” Subject: CPC Grievance Status. Please find below the CPC resolution along with the status at CPC for the query raised by you through e-filling site.

            Query raised: I recieved a message that ITR has not got processed due to to incorrect account number.My account number is as follows:
            ***********.May i know the current status now.Rectification was filed on february.

            Resolution: Dear taxpayer, processing of your return filed for AY 2014-15 has been completed. Intimation u/s 143 with communication reference number CPC/****/**/********** has been sent to your email id on 16th April 2015. Request you to follow the same.
            Transaction Status: CLOSED ”
            But today when I checked in the Refund/Demand Status tab it still says ” Status – Refund Unpaid. Reason – Incorrect Account Number”

            So what does it mean? Does it mean the account number is updated with the correct one or still is there any procedure left ?

  77. Balaji says:

    2014 – 2015 In my ITR status is showing 139(9) of IT act 1961. after that next status is showing Your ITR is in progress, so kindly wait for next communication mail from CPC, still i did not get any mail from CPC. so i have revised my ITR file. now present status is ITR received when i get the refund amount???

  78. SABYASACHI says:

    I have a lil query. Just guide. Filed a return for AY 14-15 with Tax Refund. Intimation concludes NO REFUND. Rechecked with Form 26AS and revised as TDS deducted was more than the previous. Changed the Gross Income and put TDS details as per FORM 26AS. Mail Revised ITRV received after 10 days. But now it is 6 months, Revised ITRV has not been processed.

    – Should I go for Rectification or still was wait for the process ?

    • Kirti says:

      I am little confused SabyaSachi, you revised the return after getting the intimation from the CPC on Intimation of processing of your return which said NO REFUND.
      The revised return can be filed before the expiry of one year from the end of the relevant assessment year or before the completion of assessment, whichever is earlier, As per section 139(5) of Income Tax.

  79. Emani GANAPATHIRAO says:

    I have paid the Incometax from my salary for the FY2012-13 and filed e return through my tax consultant. I received demand notice from CPC under 143( I) to pay the tax. I have contacted my employer and the CA and they informed that they have not filed return for the 3rd quarter as they were not allotted TIN no. And hence tax paid for that quarter was not reflected in form 26a. What to do now??

    • Kirti says:

      Sad to know about it.
      Did you file the returns based on Form 16? Did Form 16 say that TDS has been collected from you?
      Is the TDS paid now and does it reflect in Form 26AS?
      Can the company give it in writing? You can approach the Assessing Officer with all the information.
      Sadly an employee has to bear for faults of employer

  83. Mayank says:


    I have some Queries.I got my Intimation U/S 143(1) in june of A.Y 2012-2013. When I checked both the column (As Provided by Taxpayer in Return of Income) and (As Computed Under Section 143(1)) all the values in fields are same in both the columns instead of some columns.
    First columns is TOTAL INCOME AFTER DEDUCTIONS, I provided(1,58,929) and they computed (1,58,930). As I know calculation of these fields in ITR-1 is automatic (via macro). so my first query is As all other fields having simailar values they why this field value is having difference in CPC?

    After the above field, My “Tax on total income” is Rs.0 in both the columns(provided by me and Computed by them) but my TDS as I provided was Rs.539 (i.e. also calculated automatic while filing ITR-1) because in my form 16 my company deducted rs.539 and Refund also is of Rs. 539 but in CPC they computed as Rs.0. in all the columns .Thats why my refund status is showing no demand and no return.

    Now How do we know if there is mistake from income tax side or our side? If they computed wrongly then what is the process to make it correct so that I will get my refund back? I provided correct details only while fililng ITR-1 as per I got my Form 16 from my company.


    • Kirti says:

      There are slight differences due to rounding of the income.To avoid difficulty in calculation of Tax amount, act provides provisions of rounding off of Taxable income as well final tax liability.

      As per Section 288A, Total amount of taxable income calculated fraction part should be ignored and then s rounded off to nearest Rupees 10 (ten) For example, if taxable amount computed is Rs. 999995 then it shall be rounded off as Rs. 1,00,000 and where taxable amount computed is Rs. 9,99,994.50, 9,99,994 would be considered and rounded off as Rs. 9,99,990

      As per Section 288B final tax liability, calculated on taxable income shall be Rounded off to nearest Rupees 10(ten) and avoid any fraction thereto.
      For example if Mr Shyam has a total income off Rs. 1,99,994 his Taxable income ( Rounded off) becomes 199990.00. Tax Liability @ 10.30% is 4118.97 which without fraction is 4118 and gets rounded off to 4120

    • Kirti says:

      Coming to your second question on Tax on total income should be 0 because it is below minimum taxable limit(2,00,000)
      Does the TDS provided by company is reflected in your Form 26AS? From CPC calculations it does not seem so
      Our article What to Verify in Form 26AS? explains it in detail.
      Please verify the form 26AS and see if TDS is reflected. If TDS is not reflected check with your company.

      • Mayank says:

        Hi Kirti,

        As per suggested I have checked the Form 26AS.and read your aricle on that. I am lil bit confused about the entries. Actually in(PART A – Details of Tax Deducted at Source) is showing Rs.539. How do we know whether Rs 539. deposited to Income Tax department?

        Part D – Details of Paid Refund is showing “no transaction present”. If you allowed can I paste my entries here of Form 26AS? Is this a confidential?

        • Kirti says:

          Sorry for delay in replying. I was on vacation.
          Part A shows the TDS which govt has received . Status of Booking shows whether details submitted by deductor matches govt. Sometimes you find U or P. More details on status of booking at Understanding Form 26AS
          Status of booking is F or FINAL which shows that payment details of TDS / TCS deposited in bank by deductors have matched with the payment details mentioned in the TDS / TCS statement filed by the deductors.

          Part D
          If you have got any tax refunds in that assessment Year it would be listed under this section or If you have not received any tax refund then there will no entries in this section and it will show No Transactions Present. It depends on which assessment year you got the refunds for which year. We have shown both the images in pur article.

  84. Suryakant says:

    Hi Kirti,

    Very good and informative post !!!
    I have one question. I have sent signed ITR-V and ITR-V was received by CPC in first week of July. After so many days (almost three months), on website the status still shows ITR-V received no other status update (processes, rejected etc.). As of now, is acknowledgement of ITR-V sufficient to prove that I had filed returns on time? Do I need to send ITR-V again? How much time should I wait? In case, they demand tax, which period they will consider for interest on penalty? Please tell me how to proceed.


    • Kirti says:

      Suryakant when you say ITR-V was received by CPC I assum you mean you got intimation mail.
      Yes it happens, people have started getting the demand notice or 143(1) intimation so please wait for sometime. The intimation shall be sent before the expiry of one year from the end of the assessment year in which the income was assessable
      Yes acknowledgement of ITR-V sufficient. Infact date is taken as the date you submitted or uploaded your return.
      No you don’t need to sent ITR-V again.
      From what little I know
      The major number of penalties initiated every year as a ritual by I-T Authorities is under section 271(1)(c) which is for either concealment of income or for furnishing inaccurate particulars of income.
      “If the Assessing Officer or the Commissioner (Appeals) or the Commissioner in the course of any proceedings under this Act, is satisfied that any person-
      (b) has failed to comply with a notice under sub-section (1) of section 142 or sub-section (2) of section 143 or fails to comply with a direction issued under sub-section (2A) of section 142, or
      (c) has concealed the particulars of his income or furnished inaccurate particulars of such income,
      he may direct that such person shall pay by way of penalty,-
      (ii) in the cases referred to in clause (b), in addition to any tax payable by him, a sum of ten thousand rupees for each such failure;
      (iii) in the cases referred to in clause (c), in addition to any tax payable by him, a sum which shall not be less than, but which shall not exceed three times, the amount of tax sought to be evaded by reason of the concealment of particulars of his income or the furnishing of inaccurate particulars of such income.

  85. Hitesh Patil says:


    I had done some mistake while filling the IT Return this year thorugh online.
    The taxable amount I entered is actually the gross amount and not the total taxable amount. Due to which, I got demand notice from IT Department saying I need to pay remaining taxable amount.
    Also I forget to show my Home loan interest while filling the IT Return.

    Is it possible to submit the ITRV again with the correct taxable amount and the home loan interest.
    Or do I need to contact the AO for the same

    • Kirti says:

      Oops Hitesh. You need to do corrective action but Let us get the facts right
      You are talking about return for FY 2012-13 Or AY 2013-14 (last date of filing was 5 Aug 2013)
      -when did you get the notice
      -What does the notice say – order number 143(1) or 143(2) or ???

      • Hitesh Patil says:

        Hi Kirti,
        Its for AY 2013-14.
        I had filled the return in 29 July itself. But mistakenly I had put the gross amount instead of total taxable amount.
        Due to this my tax gets calcualted on gross amount and thus I got the notice of payment of remaining amount.

        Notice says:
        Intimation U/S 143(1) of the income tax act
        Order Date mention in the notice: 27-07-2013

        • Kirti says:

          The intimation under section 143(1) is sent by the IT Department in response to tax return filed by the tax payers. The intimation as the name suggests intimates the tax payer about, any tax and interest payable or if the assessee is eligible for refunds after providing all the necessary adjustments relating to tax deducted at source, advance tax paid, any tax paid on self – assessment or any other amount in the nature of tax or interest.

          In the attached file there would be table of what you filed and how CPC calculated.
          Go through it in detail. Understand the difference .
          Then You can rectify your return. Process is explained in How to rectify your income tax return online

    • Kirti says:

      Ideally, a refund cheque is supposed to reach your mailing address in four months or can be credited to your bank account through the electronic clearing system or ECS. Many people complain about their share pending for long time.
      Once a return is filed, the income tax (I-T) department verifies the information and processes it, and refunds any excess paid.
      Getting your refund is a lengthy and time-consuming process. You can take it up with the Assessing Officer or Additional Commissioner of Income Tax (A-CIT), which should be sorted in a month or three.
      For more details read Business Standard Long wait for that tax refund

    I have signed the ITR V in black ink.. Will that be a problem, Do I need to send another copy to IT dept, Bangalore. My status does not show the receipt of ITRV. Kindly advise

    • Kirti says:

      Mitali, Though it is said that you should sign in blue ink, but people you have signed in black ink have not got their ITR-V rejected.
      You can wait for a week or so for acknowledgement. If you get it well and good.
      Else you can also call CPC to find about it.
      The helpline numbers for CPC are: Toll free – 1800-425-2229, and Phone Number – 080-22546500

    Can you please tell me which is the website you are referring to here ?

    • Kirti says:

      Yes it is website. Updated the article as well.
      Thanks for asking Rupa

      • Rupa says:

        Thank you for your reply.
        Can I get a copy of the confirmation which is sent to us by email after we send the ITRV?
        In my case the CA filed income tax for past 2 years and he says this final confirmation comes to his email account. He did not give me this final confirmation to me last year. Also this year when I asked him he says it takes months. Can I get a copy of the final confirmation on the website itself that is

          Rupa this is a common problem people face when they get the return filed by CA.
          Did you see if you can register at using your PAN details. You can check the process in our article Registering on Income Tax efiling Website
          If your PAN number is not registered then create an account?
          If your PAN number is registered then you can ask the CA for your password (assuming he has created the account) or get the password reset?
          So Check whether your PAN is registered or not at!

    Hi Kirti, Thanks for the prompt response. As mentioned in my last post, I received the ITR-V after eFiling of my ITR-4. I signed the form and sent it as required to be sent in 120 days. I am talking of the Acknowledgement of this ITR-V. I received the email with an attachment and this attached file got corrupted as a result of that the what I had as an attachment was a dat file which cannot be read. I also got the confirmation of the receipt of the duly signed ITR-V sent by me through SMS also. But, I wanted the original pdf file acknowledging the receipt of ITR-V received in CPC of the IT Department.
    As advised by you I have tried to access My Account on the efile site and I am not able to download the file I need. Only ITR-V is available there which I already have and sent it duly signed within 120 days as required.

  91. That’s a must know info to all. Thanks for sharing
