    Please lease do not praise the New Portal.
    1. ITR PROCESSING – It is wrong to say that the Portal starts immediate processing with early refund. In the previous portal I used to get Refund within 10 days. In this Portal it is already 30 days; NO PROCESSING.
    3. CALL CENTER SERVICE: – One has to really be an expert because the Call centre never gives a straight and correct reply. The IVR asking for PAN & DOB always returns an answer that they don’t match
