    Hi, I received “Final reminder communication: Non-Receipt of ITR V” notification for AY 2013-14 from CPC in Feb, 2015 through email, but unfortunately I couldn’t file return within the time limits. Today I tried to efile ITR using 139(4), and so I paid remaining payable tax amount Rs. 4,250(including interest). After form completion, I clicked submit button and getting “The end date for filing this ITR is over.” message. After the final reminder till now I didn’t get any further notification from CPC. Please let me know:
    1. how can I file ITR for AY 2013-14 along with Penalty ?
    2. Should I need to wait for further intimation from CPC ?
