Source:-The Notification No.2/2015 on dated 13.07.2015 The Notification will come into effect from the date of issue.

By this notification the process of verification after e-filing of any Income tax return has been modified only.

Before this notification we had only two options to verify the income tax return -  

1. Verify the return with the help of digital signature

In this case the assessee generally verify its income tax return with its digital signature and email the ITR-V to income tax dept. 2. Verify the return with the help of manual signature(Non digital signature) In this case the assessee who didn’t have their digital signature has an option to verify their e-filing income tax return by signing on hard copy of ITR-V and shall to post it to Bangalore within  120days of filing the income tax return. Often it observed that the process of sending ITR-V to Bangalore didn’t work fruitfully sometimes for assessee and as well as for Income tax dept. also, since the assessee post their ITR-V within 120 days but it get received by dept. after 120days of filing the ITR, Hence thereafter mainly ITR rejects by Income tax dept.  

However the assessee has also an option to verify its return by digital signature which results are much better and has not any chances of Non-Receipt of ITR-V, however they are expensive and can’t afford by everyone, generally for Individuals. 1.

However the assessee has also an option to verify its return by digital signature which results are much better and has not any chances of Non-Receipt of ITR-V, however they are expensive and can’t afford by everyone, generally for Individuals.
