    सही कहा है।जो जानकारी मांगी जा रही है, वह AY2018-19का। return भरते समय ली जा सकती है इसके लिए एक परिशिष्ट return के साथ ही जोडा जा सकता है।इस दौरान लोग अपनी जानकारी तैयार कर सकते है।

    Without giving proper time the department does this with immediate effect. It gives lot of problem. For example I could not update my own profile with my own telephone no and email id, since I have used these for more than 3. Atleast the department should have listed who are all the others and a facility to delete some and retain the three. Now I am blindfolded and I could not update my own number and email id.

      Totally Agree with you Vijayan Ji.
      The same problem has been faced by me.

      Please note the rational and intelligence that information of you linking your mobile Number and e-mail ID for more than three e-filing account is disclosed only after you fill all the fields in profile updation form and you attempt e-verification. The same could have been provided only one select first field of mobile number and field of email ID.
