Dear Sir, I think that ITR 2 would be used by an individual/HUF NOT having sec. 28 income but having income in ANY other head. but ITR 1 is essentially limited to INDIVIDUAL ONLY having salary and/or family pension and/or interest and nothing else. so I think that an individual having only salary income would be using ITR 1 and not ITR 2.
Thanks for your reply.As I understand ITR1 is for a person having Salary and Interest (Not salary or interest).So still I think that for a person having only salary income ITR 2 should be used.Pl reply.
