revised return

Have you made any errors while filing income tax return and wondering how to e-file a revised return to rectify the error? Don’t worry. Use ClearTax. It is easy and quick to file a revised return using ClearTax.

In fact the good news is that, from the FY 2016-17, even a return filed belatedly ( after the due date) can be revised which was earlier not the case. Only a return that had been originally filed before the due date could be revised for years prior to FY 2016-17.
