Use your NSDL demat account details to generate EVC (Electronic Verification Code) for e-Filing of Income Tax return
As you may be aware, the Income Tax Department (ITD) has introduced the facility of Electronic Verification Code (EVC). EVC is introduced to make the e-filing process of income tax returns simpler and completely paperless. Now, you just have to put an EVC after filing your income tax return and you are done with e-filing. EVC can also be used for other services of Income Tax Department.
Electronic Verification Code (EVC) is a 10 digits alpha numeric code and can be generated easily online. For NSDL demat account holders, it is now possible to generate the EVC using your demat account, if your mobile number or email ID is registered in your demat account. The option to generate EVC through demat account number is made available on the ITD website post login.
Step 1: Prevalidate your Demat Account
Step 2: Generate EVC – Through Demat Account Number
Note: This facility has been made LIVE by ITD for NSDL demat account holders only.
