Other reasons for the ITR-V to be rejected

The Income Tax Department may also reject the ITR-V either if your signature is missing or the ITRV document is of "poor quality".

Remember, you will receive a notification via e-mail and SMS if your ITR-V is rejected. The status of rejection would also be updated in the E-Filing “My Account” section.

If the 120 days from the date of e-Filing haven't elapsed, simply print out a fresh copy of the ITRV, sign and send it back to CPC within 120 days from the date of e-Filing.
