Hi All

This is my Case

Filed return on 27/07/2011 for AY 2011-12 and sent ITR V within a month. But  i guess due to postal department it never reached.

Got a mail from IT Office that return not filed.

So finally sent the ITR V again and on 25/11/2011 got the status

ITRV rejected  Reason Filing date has exceeded return date.

I have a refund of Rs 10,000 due.

Now what are my options

Do i file a revised return.

Is it too late to file a revised return as i feel you have to file within some 60 days of reply.

I also tried filing a revised return and chose option 12 u/s 139(4) but getting following error while validating

Return type in sheet : Income details must be original when return NOT filed under S139(5)

So when i select 15 under sec 139(5) and validate, sheet is ok, but i am in doubt whether to file under 139(4) or 139(5)

I am not even sure if i need to file a revised return.

Please help.
