The Income Tax Department entertains queries for all assessees regarding the refunding of income tax through the Tax Information Network (TIN). The SBI has been appointed as the refund banker, which processes refunds and routes them to the assessees’ bank accounts. If the assessee does not choose direct credit, a cheque is sent. This facility also helps track the status of the parcel that has been despatched by speed post. All refunds are handled by the Central Processing Centre (CPC) at Bangalore. Visit https://tin.tin.nsdl.com/oltas/refundstatuslogin.html   for checking the status of your income tax refund. You can do so by indicating your PAN, relevant assessment year and then clicking on ‘submit’.

Processing

If the processing of the refund has not been completed by your assessing officer, or if there is no refund payable to you for that year, you will get a message saying so.

Refund details

If there is a refund, you will get details showing your refund reference number, the date of credit to your bank account or the date of despatch of the cheque by speed post, and the speed post reference number, if applicable

Tracking

You can go to http://services.ptcmysore.gov.in/speednettracking/ and enter the speed post reference number. On submitting it, you will get a link called ‘movement’, which will show the status of your parcel.

E-mail

You can submit your reference number and e-mail ID on the speed post tracker screen. You will receive an e-mail when your parcel has been received.

Points to note

Status check: You can check if your refund has been sent to the SBI, the refund banker, by logging into your e-filing account.

Payment mode: Refunds are being sent in following two modes:

  1. RTGS / NECS: To enable credit of refund directly to the bank account, Taxpayer’s Bank A/c (at least 10 digits), MICR code of bank branch and correct communication address is mandatory.
  2. Paper Cheque: Bank Account No, Correct address is mandatory.

Error notification: If there is an error in the refund or in case of any other query, the assessee can write to CPC Bangalore, quoting the refund reference number.

    This particular facility provided for the information clearly demonstrates the intellectual sadism of the bureacrats. I just do not understand the purpose of it. From this the assess can only if it is already despatched but not reached. This is the rare case.
    Instead it SHOULD HAVE provided upto ? date the refunds are sent.

    ? does not intimate through SMS or e-mail when the dept does not have bank account. instead it keeps quiet. but while filing it is mandatory.
    it does not add interest till date of payment. instead it pays upto the date of processing.

    do you know.

    it does not speak when there is no matching credit found -TDS filed by the other party.

    no use…..no USE. absolutely no use.

  8. Dr. NKSharma says:

    I deposited my Incometax vide a cheque drawn on SBI Moradabad at main branch of SBI Moradabad in March 2009. The SBI Moradabad has not uploaded this data in form 26AS.
    I submitted all original receipts to Itax officer at Rudrapur(UK) where i have been depositing returns for the past 40 years.
    The incometax officer told me as per rules, till such time SBI Moradabad uploads this figure in form 26AS, I canot get my tax-refund. I approached SBI Moradabad several times but they say they don’t hv staff.
    Whose fault is it? I hv paid tax to SBI which is a govt undertaking. The ITO says it is not valid. Where should a hapeless Indian citizen go? Whom to complain? I took a printout of form 26 AS and sent it to ITO. I showed several mistakes in it.
    The ITO showed sympathy but asked me to write to higher officers but no one bothers in this country!!!! Can anyone suggest how to go about the situation? I hv to get a refund of Rs. 15000.00 from ITO.

    SIR MY REFUND CHEQUE RETURN BY POST DUE TO NON AVALIABLE OF POSTAL ADDRESS, PLEASE ADVICE

  11. N.Krishnamoorthy says:

    The cheque for the income-tax refund received shows a lower amount than what the assessee claimed in her return. No covering letter explaining the position is appended to the refund cheque. As a writer has stated, it is necessary for the assessee to get these details in order to satisfy herself that the correct amount has bewen refunded to her. Besides, as my fgriend put it, the assessee is precluded from offering the interest on IT refund as his income and the Department also loses tax on the interestportion of the refund. The system should be modified to remove this lacuna.

  12. dattatreyahg says:

    Fine. Something has been done. But it is only half done. (1)How does the assessee come to know whether the refund given is in line with what has been claimed by assessee? ( In the manual system of earlier days,the Refund cheque issued by ITO used to come along with a covering letter indicating what are the amounts taken into account for arriving at the principal amount of Refund and the interest thereof. This was very helpful in reconsiling the figures in my IT Return with the figures of ITO’s covering letter and I could raise quieries where they did not match with each other. I could aso include the interest mentioned as my income of the year in which it was received and pay I T on that interest). (2) These days, SBI(bombay) sends a cheque/ecs payment with a coverng letter which does not give of the details except the total amount of REfund. It does not even show the amount of interest separately.Many people appear to take the view that we should not worry about paying IT on an interest that is not made known to us. To strenghen this view, the REFUND for A/Y2009-10 showed exactly the same amount as I had claimed (Rs 8360/-) making it obvious that the interest has not been included at all in the Refund. I dont know if it is a one-off mistake or a systemic failure involving the entire community of assessees of that year. Either way it is a financial punishment inflicted on the assesse(s) who made prompt tax payments. Looking at it from a different perspective,GOVT IS LOSING Income Tax ON INTEREST ELEMENT OF REFUND,if interest is included in the Refund advice. If interest is not included in the Refund advice, it amounts to penal deduction without authority. I do not know how such defects in basic financial transactions have escaped audit scrutiny. Anyway I suggest the following, for whatever it is worth,for consideration and corrective action:– (1) Include in Form 26 AS ,the Assessment Order in full detail, to enable assessees to satisfy themselves of the correctness of the figures shown in it,and raise queries-if need be (2)Instruct SBI(BOMBAY) to re-format their REFUND ADVICE letter to show Principal amount of Refund, and INTEREST on it, SEPARATELY . I am not an Income Tax Specalist. These are only the views from the point of view of a Tax payer facing problems of the kind mentioned above in the true spirit of CITIZENS’ CHARTER talked about by FINANCE MINISTER.

  14. RAKESH KUMAR JAIN says:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I have received no refund information & refund for the IT Returns for FY 2008-2009 & FY 2009-2010. When should I expect the refund for these?

    For this year I have filed ITR (before July end). I sent ITR-V by speed post on 16 July which was received by CPC on 18th July as per Speed Post tracking but still it shows status that ITR-V not received. What should I do? Also, what about refund for this year? Will it be processed only after status for ITR-V shows that ITR-V has been received. What is the best procedure for sending ITR-V to make sure that they show the status that ITR-V has been received by CPC?

    Thanking you. Best regards, RAKESH
