Income Tax Refund- Know the Status & FAQ

Introduction:- The refund banker has been implemented from January 24, 2007. The refund banker facility is initially operational for taxpayers assessed in specific charges in Delhi, Patna, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata and all  taxpayers (excluding corporate and exemption charge) of the six cities i.e. Delhi, Patna, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata are covered under the scheme.

Who will send the Refund?:- The State Bank of India (SBI) is the refund banker to the Income Tax Department (ITD). The Cash Management Product department of SBI (CMP SBI) processes the refunds under the refund banker scheme. Details of refunds are forwarded to CMP SBI by the ITD. CMP SBI processes the refunds and sends the refund intimation to the taxpayer.

Mode of Refund:- There are two modes of refund; i.e. ECS and paper. If the taxpayer has selected mode of refund as ECS (direct credit in the bank account of the taxpayer) at the time of submission of income return and provided the correct account number along with the MICR code, the refund will be effected through ECS by CMP SBI. A physical advice of refund credited will also be sent to the taxpayer by post. From May 2008 refund is also effected by National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT).

For taxpayers who have not opted for ECS, refund will be disbursed by cheque or demand draft. The refund instrument will be dispatched by speed post by CMP SBI at the postal address mentioned in the income return.

In case of Change of Correspondence Address:- The tax payer should contact its Assessing Officer and inform about the change in the correspondence address.

If Bank account mentioned in ITR closed of Account number been changed: – In case of change or updation in the bank account number the taxpayer should provide the correct account number along with the MICR code where credit is to be effected to the Assessing Officer.
