Do I need to file Updated Return?

For AY2021, I had received a demand u/s 143 (1) which I paid in December 2021. When I filed the return for AY23, I was eligible for a refund. However, I realized that this refund was rather adjusted against the tax demand for AY2021, even though I had already paid it. The amount paid also reflects in my 26AS. How could I get the credit for this amount in my ITR also such that I receive my refund for AY23 and and my future refunds aren't adjusted against this demand.
