EVC Generation Through Net Banking

Taxpayers who have a taxable income which exceeds the basic exemption limit are required to file an income tax return every financial year. The return should be filed before the due date specified in the Income Tax Act. For taxpayers who are not required to undergo a tax audit, the due date is generally 31st July. When a taxpayer files income tax returns, the returns should be verified to ensure that the information transmitted in the return has been furnished with the knowledge and assent of the taxpayer. In the initial days of the introduction of the concept of verification, the taxpayer had to send a copy of the acknowledgement to the Centralised Processing Centre (CPC), Bengaluru. However, in the present-day scenario of ubiquitous adoption of digital technology, verifying of tax returns has been made easier than before, on account of the e-verification facility provided by the Income Tax Department. Earlier, after filing an income tax return, the taxpayer would have to send a physical copy of the signed ITR-V acknowledgement to the CPC in Bangalore. Now, the verification can be completed through EVC or e-verification. In this article, we discuss the procedure for EVC generation through net banking.

  • Net-banking
  • Automated Teller Machine (ATM)
  • Bank account details
  • Demat account
