More Under Income Tax



    Why NOT introduce EVC by sending OTP to Registered mobile & email for all assesses rather than restrict it only to those whose income is less than Rs.5.00 Lakhs and where there are NO Refunds?
    AADHAR linking is OK; however as pointed out by TAMILKELVAN, a very big pronlem exists in Tamil Nadu. Also if the Registered mobile with AADHAR gets lost the problem of restoring the number asnd necessary delay will cause pronlem unless alternate means are also avilable for EVC

  2. VIJAY says:

    Yes. There is no doubt that the E-filing System is fantastic. However, the problem relating to E-verification based on Aadhar Database requires fine tuning. Especially the name verification shall be pruned in such a way that when the name of the individual in Aadhar Database matches with any one of the three names ie first middle or last name of the PAN Database, no error shall be shown and the verification shall be approved. This aspect requires immediate attention.

  3. Mukesh says:

    I shall be satisfied if the refund will be credited in account within 24-48 hours as of now and immediately after filing return eventually. This may be subject to validation that refund is not more than 30% of tax paid as a general and liberal for senior citizen and persons who have to file return for TDS refund in case they have no taxable income. People will not cry on TDS deductor which they face as of now.

  4. Sidhes says:

    It is very good initiative but, maximum time it is showing that data mismatch, when a person having Aadhar and PAN card with same particulars but still it is saying data mismatch, In such situation department should have another procedure to validate the return,like confirming the detail through mobile and e-mail, which is register with department. That will bring more help to verify the return.
    Instead of allowing 10-10 users in one e-mail and one mobile, it would be better and if it would strict to one or maximum two user in one e-mail and one phone,
    It will bring more security and spread awareness between the tax payer and practitioners.

  5. Kamal Khurdia says:

    In continuation to concerned expressed by Mr. Tamilkelvan, I want to draw attention on one more issue. The Department has proposed two processes of EVC, one for fillers having no refund and Income below 5 Lacs and another for persons having refund or income above 5 Lacs. I could not understand why there are two separate processes. Why not one process is adopted for all type of returns? Further EVC in case of refund and or Income above 5 Lacs can only be generated through Mobile number registered with Aadhar and netbanking, but we all know how Aadhar were prepared when even after providing all the Information like DOB, Bank details, Mobile Number etc. the preparing agency did not bother for the same and have not updated/ fed the information. Further all the persons who are filing Income Tax returns do not have access to netbanking.
    Thus my suggestion is that why mobile number and email id which are given at the time of filing of return cannot be used to generate EVC in all the cases of returns filed like the same is used in filing Income Tax Returns having no refund and Income below Rs. 5 Lacs.
    Please put the issue with Tax authorities and get corrected the same as soon as possible so that lot of paper, time and energy will be saved.

  6. B.Vaidyanathan says:

    Quick filing of the Returns has been made possible with the new online IT Returns filing and Aadhar linked electronic verification. Kudos to the IT Department. As a matter of fact, I could file 2 Returns with electronic verification, within 15 minutes. Finance Minister – Keep up the good work.

    As far as the First Name, Last Name Confusion is concerned, there needs to be some revamp of the PAN Card issuing, in respect of Tamilnadu is concerned. I had pointed out this more than two years ago, through your columns. I am not amused with the feedback given by Mr. Tamilselvan. Let IT Deptt. realise this flaw.

  7. TAMILKELVAN says:

    The Government of India is improving efiling of returns day and day out. However there has been problem for linking AADHAR NUMBER WITH PAN. i filed my return electronically during first week of july by which EVC was not introduced and hence I sent FORMV and everything is smooth with credit of REFUND AS WELL AS RECEIPT OF INTIMATION. However whenever I login to the IT DEPARTMENT I am receiving message for linking with AADHAR. The problem is that IN AADHAR CARD AS IS THE PRACTICE IN TAMILNADU THERE IS NO CONCEPT OF FIRST NAME MIDDLE NAME AND SURNAME personal name is entered first and the father’s name with the result that My personal name and father’s name are exhibited. However in PAN IT IS THE REVERSE CASE. Thus there has been mismatch. When I contacted the DEPARTMENT they wanted me to update either PAN OR AADHAR. But there is still difficulty. In all CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS AS IN PASSPORTS the procedure followed is FIRST NAME/MIDDLE NAME AND SURNAME. While in STATE GOVERNMENT/LPG SUBSIDY/BANKS it is the reverse. Thus whenever when PA OR AADHAR are linked with VOTER IDENTITY/BANKS there will be still difficulty. Hence what I suggest is that just as in other Departments ITD should devise a mechanism whereby the particulars give during the time of efiling may be matched with AADHAR since PERSONAL NAME/FATHER’S NAME ADDRESS AND DATE OF BIRTH will not change in both the cases. Further AADHAR NUMBER is also indicated in return. Hence I request TAXGURU to take up this issue seriously in the right earnest since it is not an individual issue but a general issue and sensitize the DEPARTMENT so that at leat at the time of filing the RETURN FOR 206-17 this issue gets resolved.

  8. S PRAKASH says:

    what about linking of ADHAAR? Try it. What about refund of the persons who have filed the returns promptly and died, and the fate and correspondence of the legal heirs with the CPC? FORM 4,5,6 AND 7????????????
