  9. Sekaran says:

    Dear Sir,
    The article seems incomplete.As per a news paper(TOI 14.7.15) it states that EVC cannot be used where refund is being claimed. Further for Total income over Rs 5 Lakhs also you cannot employ EVC. Kindly clarify this issue.Thanks.

  10. Gourav doomra says:

    Dear All,

    My query is about EVC generation process, that if a return of income is being filed by generating EVC and there after no need to send ITRV to CPC-Bangalore. is there any norm or provision that only such returns can be filed by generating EVC where there is no refund.
    does any body have the update?

    regards

  11. Gourav doomra says:

    Dear Sania,

    You need to file your return of income before the due date which is 31.08.2015 for the AY 2015-16 and there after if it is discovered that there is any mistake, you can revise it before 31st March 2017.
    point to remember is that the return can be revised and processed successfully is original return is filed before due date.

    regards

  12. CA. M. Lakshmanan says:

    E-filing through net banking may not be of much use because majority of the returns are not filed assessees themselves; instead they are filed by their representatives and assessees may not be willing to share their net-banking password to the representatives.

  13. ANIL PANCHAL says:

    If you want to file revise return after correcting some error first note that your original return has to be filed before due date. Than you can file revise return within one assessment year. If had file original return after due date then you are not eligile to file revise return.

  14. Kapil says:

    Sania,

    You can revise your return up to 20 months avg basis.
    Ex. if you filed itr before 31st August 2015 and its wrong then you can revise it before 31st March 2017.

    sIR
    This EVC system under confuse one. Net Banking Parties are very few here and they wont reveal their PWD and User Id to us mostely for security reasons. Certain people will cooperate with us and some one may hesitate. Aadhar Card links gives us also problems like mismatching of numbers. Both links are useless one for speedy filing of ITR. Simply previous one ITR V is only safe method and loss of man hours also may be saved for us. Please any solution to get rid of to quick filing may be shared to our good friends please help us what you are experienced in this line of efiling by using EVC please co operate for good things

  18. Sania says:

    If after filing itr v we realize that there is a mistake in selecting the form or in the data that is filled in it , can we revise the returns. If yes what is the limitation period.
