Time between filing a return and paying taxes online

Vamsi Krishna (Student CA Final ) (26 Points)

Hello all,

I always had this doubt. While filing my ITR-1, and after determinig the final tax liability, what is the maximum time allowed for me to pay the remaining tax (i.e., after adjusting all the 26AS credit) through internet banking?

I had filed my return ITR-1 on 28th july 2013 and paid taxes on 3rd August.(5 days delay).

Now I have received a intimation on my mobile that my return is defective and is to be filed 139(9).

Called up CPC, they suggest that my tax might have not been paid. but in my26 AS, the tax paid is reflected.

I feel that the reason for me to receive notice is because of the 5 day delay in making payment the tax online.

Please provide your thoughts....
