Income Tax- Forget e-filing Password

It is common for everyone that e-filing password has been forgotten. Generally , e-filing password is used once in a year at the time of filing of Income Tax Return.
Now, question is that How can we get e-filing password for submitting Income Tax Return. Return Date for submitting Income Tax Return for each financial Year for salaried person is 31st July as per present rules.
To recover the e-filing password, Forgot Password link is useful for all. As we enter PAN number a new screen with three options appears as shown in below picture.
Easiness depends upon users. If user knows Secret Question that first option is better. If user has Acknowledgement Number of last year return, than second option is better.
In the absence of Secret Question or Acknowledgement Number, third option is best. Pan Details are required like as Complete Name of Pan, Date of Birth , Father Name.
In the third option, new password is sent in email. This procedure is too much easy to recover e-filing password.
