Updated on :  

08 min read.

An income tax return after being filed has to be verified. It is not treated as valid until it is verified by the taxpayer. The Income Tax department has given the option of verifying the return either electronically or physically (i.e by sending signed ITR-V to Centralized Processing Center (CPC) in Bangalore).

Latest Updates
The CBDT has reduced the time limit of ITR verification to 30 days (from 120 days) from the date of return submission. The new rule is applicable for the returns filed online on or after 1st August 2022. For the income tax returns filed up to 31st July 2022, the time limit for ITR verification remains 120 days.

The  following are the ways for e-verifying the return online :

1. Aadhaar OTP

2. Netbanking

3. Bank Account

4. Demat Account

5.Digital Signature Certificate
