The days have gone when we used to rush to post offices for sending our acknowledgement copy (ITR-V form) of income tax return, filed online (without using DSC), duly signed to Income tax office, CPC Bengaluru. 

Now, we can verify our e-filled return of income, electronically, using EVC (Electronic Verification Code) system.

The Electronic Verification Code (EVC) would verify the identity of the person furnishing

the return of income through e-Filing. The system can be used by an Individual or that of an HUF of which he is the Karta in Income Tax Return Form 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4 or 4S or the Income Tax Return Form filed in ITR 5 or 7 of any person in accordance with Section 140 of the Income Tax Act 1961.

The process of e-verification enumerated below :

Step 1: Login to e-Filing Portal

Step 2: Click “e-File” Select “e-Verify Return” to view the Returns pending for e-Verification.

Step 3 : the return details would appear pending for verification. Click on red colored link “e-verify” to verify the return.

Step4: after that three option will be provided to verify the return.

Option 1 – “I already have an EVC to e-Verify my return.”

Under this option you need to enter pre generated EVC (if you have already), then click “submit” to verify. No further action required.

Option 2 – “I do not have an EVC and I would like to generate EVC to e-Verify my return.”

If you click on this option, further two options would be provided:

Option (a) : EVC- Through Net Banking

Click on this option if you have online banking facility. Instruction pop up would appear, click “continue”. You would be logged out of the e-filing and redirected to list of banks available for Net banking login. Click on your bank name and login to e-filling through Net Banking. Lastly, click on “e-verify” and confirm by clicking on “continue”. If success message appears then no further action required.

Your verification is complete.

Option (b) : EVC- To Registered e-mail ID and Mobile Number

Click on this option if you do not have online banking facility or not want to use for this purpose. Enter the EVC received in your Mobile Number and Email Id in the provided text box and Click “Submit”. No Further action required.

Note: “If your total income is greater than 5 lakhs or if there is refund,

Then you are provided with only one option “EVC – Through Net Banking”

Option 3 – “I would like to generate Aadhaar OTP to e-Verify my return.”

Before choosing this option your Aadhar and PAN must be linked.

If your PAN and Aadhaar are not linked, pop up is displayed with  “Link Aadhar” button. By clicking on this button you can link your Aadhar and PAN.

If your PAN and Aadhaar are linked, different pop up is displayed asking to enter “Aadhar OTP” sent to your mobile number registered with Aadhar. Enter Aadhar OTP  in the text box provided and click on Submit. If success message is displayed, no further action is required.
