No. Relief cannot be availed if relevant IT return not filed.
Better to save some money u/s. Sr. Ctz Acct or Bank FD eligible for 80C deduction.
If her taxable income is brought under 5 lakhs for FY 2019-20, there will not be any tax liability. Only return for AY 2020-21 will be required to be filed.
