E-verifying your income tax return using Aadhaar Card?

Updated on :  

08 min read.

You can file your returns online with the help of your Aadhar Card.

Taxpayers no longer have to send a 1-page verification document i.e. the ITR-V to the Income Tax Department in Bangalore. Instead, they can verify their returns online with the help of an Electronic Verification Code (EVC).

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.

What is EVC code?

An Electronic Verification Code (EVC) is a 10 digit alphanumeric code that is sent to the registered mobile number of the tax filer while filing his/her returns online. It helps verify the identity of the tax filers. Such tax filers include individuals as well as Hindu Undivided Family (HUF). The individuals are required to self-verify their returns while the Karta must verify the returns of the HUF. An EVC can be generated through the e-filing portal of the Income Tax Department.
