    what is the address of sending itr-6 in bangalore?

  5. Kunal says:

    I’m not sure if this is a good move or bad move, but what they are trying to do is centralize E filing returns in one place for scrutiny. They are trying to make this a similar procedure to that of Passport.

    Yes, there is no proof of when our post was sent, but that’s the risk we take as efiling users.

  6. CA Niraj Surti,Bharuch says:

    This proposal is quite impractical for a number of reasons.
    (1)An uncertainity regarding status of receipt of our post at Banglore;
    (2)Dept. can collect such ITR-V at local income tax office after stamping them and they can send them to Banglore in ordinary post;
    (3)Multiple ITR-Vs can be sent in one cover but there is no clarity;
    (4)In case of loss returns,there is a high risk.
    (5)In era of e-returns, digital signs can be used for secured filing and there is no need for any physical filing.
    (6)Such procedures shows lack of logical thinking on part of CBDT. Let refunds be introduced electroically first and let dept restore a faith that they are also efficient.

  7. R K MAHARIWAL says:

    In my view ITR-V should be scanned after signing by Assessee and mailed to Banglaore or wherever CBDT want to Mail it.

    it means assessee has submitted the Income Tax return with department,

    the ITR-V scanned copy should be mailed with in 30 days

  8. Kuldeeep Singh says:

    The step taken by goverment for sending ITR-V to Bangalore is not good. It is also not provided/mentioned in the notification that how to send these returns to Bangalore. If a practitioner have to send more than 1 return then how to send this. Is he has to use the separate envelope for each return or he can send all returns filed in a single envelope.

    my sahajanand soni tax practioner from baroda gujarat efilling copy to sent banglore is not proper way

  10. ???? says:

    This is resorted for the benefit of postal services. People do not trust the Indian Post. It is a rumour that our letters will not reach. Although registered post should not have been denied.

  11. CA Shailesh Kamdar says:

    This is worst step introduced by CBDT. Can anybody trust our postal service in particular ordinary post. It will not be possible to prove that assessee has actually dispatched ITR-V by post.

    In my view it will drastically reduce e-filing of voluntary returns. Certainly as a practisioner, we have stoped e-filing of all voluntary returns.This will once again increase paper work and will ultimately result in late processing of returns.

    Further, when returns are sent to bangalore, how rectification of mistakes in intimation issued u/s 143(1)(a) will be carried out?

    CBDT must rethink on new procedure else it will not help small tax payers.
