  • 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.
