Good news! CPC has started to process Income Tax Returns from 23rd November 2020. Hope some taxpayers have already got Intimation from Income Tax Department u/s 143(1) at their registered email id. So, if you filed and verified your ITR successfully, your ITR will be processed soon.

Generally, CPC takes 30-60 days to process ITR and issue a refund (if any). But the situation is different this year due to COVID-19. Also, a technical upgrade (CPC 2.0) for faster processing of ITRs could be the reason behind the delay in processing ITRs. 

When will CPC start to process Income Tax Returns for FY 19-20 / AY 20-21 and give Refund  Here is the answer

According to observation, it can be said that :

  • ITR filed in June 2020 will be processed first and then ITR filed in subsequent months will be processed.
  • Electronically verified ITR will be processed in lesser time and physically verified (via post) ITR will take more time to process.
  • Nil returns will be processed in lesser time.
  • ITR 1 & 4 will be processed in lesser time and other ITRs (especially ITR-3) will take more time to process.

Also, the format of the Intimation letter u/s 143(1) has been changed a little bit (The intimation letter is starting with the Hindi version and followed by the English version).
