I filed Income-Tax Return for AY:2014-15 on 31.03.2015 and sent ITR-V by ordinary post. But unfortunately, I did not check it and it was not received.  I have just sent it again and it is received on 12.09.2016.  The status on efiling website is "ITR-V RECEIVED AFTER DUE DATE".  As I understand, the ITR-V if not received by ITD within 120 days of filing return, it is considered as not filed.  But I am confused whether I will get any communication from ITD to file fresh return or should I file again without any intimation from ITD.  Is it possible that ITD will process the return already filed even if ITR-V is received after due date?
