ITR filling has become an activity which needs  NUMEROUS STEPS and we require to ensure multiple checkpoints. These are general steps for ITR 1 TO 5 which are applicable generally to all. Any special/specific income must be treated with own experience & wisdom. Sequencing of these steps may be different from person to person. I am not claiming that this is an Exhaustive list. Hope you all find it Useful.  Please Let me know any important steps left in these.
