    i have uploaded the return and selected option 3 i.e. everify through aadhar(i already linked aadhar with PAN) but when i tried to generate OTP a mail came to me from ITD quoting that no mobile number has been registered in UIDAI (Aadhar). Now how can i verify my return as it is not showing the 4th option now i.e. by speed post mode.???? As i have refund so only EVC through net banking option is available & not by mobile no. & email id. What can i do now?

    Hi,
    I have accounts in 2 different banks – one salary a/c in ICICI and another savings a/c in IDBI bank. I have registered with IT dept. the IDBI savings bank account. Somehow my login credentials with IDBI are locked and wont be generated before 31st August which is last date for tax filing.
    I have two questions-
    1. Can I use the other salary account ICICI bank net banking login to e-verify my tax return ? OR does it have to be the IDBI bank that have registered with IT dept. ?
    2. Is e-verification’s last date same as e-filing date of 31st August ? Do I have an option to e-verify only before 31st August 2015 or can I do that later as well ?
    Thanks and looking forward to get inputs.
    Aditi.

Who is the owner of the infomation?

  7. Deepak Rajgor says:

    Option 2 differes in most of the cases. Many times in option 2 only one choice is given “to verify thriugh net banking” only and “verify throygh registered mobile & registered email id is missing”. Is there any specific reason for this??

  8. BARATHIDASON says:

    There are only 3 options shown in the efiling site. The second one is not there . How to generate OTP.

  10. Jitendra says:

    e- varification of itr is not working in the case of refund and we believe that this should be done through net banking only. Kindly clarify that because out of 3 mathods addhar otp may not work as the name differs in most of the cases and another after evc generation also the msg comes that complete this through net banking only.

  11. N Mohan Chandu says:

    Sir For Refund taxpayers evc generation is possible through mobile or e-mail id

  12. S Krishnaswamy says:

    Does e-verification relevant only for returns below Rs.5 lakhs and no refund?
