You may correct the error through two routes:
Submitting a rectification request under Section 154 of the Income Tax Act or
Filing a revised return under Section 139(5)
You can submit a rectification request after the income tax return is processed or on receiving an Intimation u/s 143(1). You can rectify mistakes apparent from the record.
Further,You can file a revised return under Section 139(5) of the Income Tax Act. Earlier, it was not permitted to file a revised return for returns filed after the due date. However, from April 1, 2017, you can file a revised return even for belated returns. This is applicable for Assessment Year 2017-18 and onwards.
