To complete your income tax filing, you need to verify your income tax return (ITR). The Income Tax Department gives taxpayers 120 days to complete ITR verification. In case you fail to do so, the department will not process your ITR.

There are five online modes and one offline mode to verify the income tax return.

  1. By Aadhar Card-based OTP verification
  • Link your mobile number and PAN to your Aadhar card.

  • Visit the Income Tax website. Click on the ‘My Account’ option or visit the ‘Quick Links’ section. Select the ‘e-Verify Return’ sub-option.

  • Enter your PAN details, assessment year and acknowledgement number and click on submit.

  • Upon submission, you will get an option to generate a one-time password (OTP) to verify income tax return. Select the option to receive a 6-digit OTP (valid for 30 minutes) on your mobile number.

  • Enter the OTP in the required box on the website and submit to complete your income tax verification.

  1. By generating EVC through the net banking facility (available for select banks only)
