27 January 2023  

I have opted in new tax regime u/s 115BAC during AY 2021-22 , however while filling updated return for AY 2022-23 getting following error " opting for new tax regime is not allowed for assessee filing ITR u/s 139(8A) for the first time as the due date of opting the same is lapsed".

Error message attached.

Please note that I have duely opted in 115 BAC during AY 2021-22 and not first time in AY 2022-23. Please share your views on whether there is any restrictions on following 115 BAC in AY 2022-23 if ITR-U is being filed.
