Other than Aadhaar-based OTP, Ways to validate your ITR
Your ITR must be verified within 120 days after being submitted, otherwise it will be declared invalid. Aadhaar-based OTP is the simplest way to authenticate your ITR. There are two requirements that must be met in order for this technique to be used. As a first step, you should link your Aadhaar to your PAN number, and then to an active mobile phone. But if you don't match the aforementioned two requirements, you can't use Aadhaar-based OTP to authenticate your ITR. It's worth noting that you may validate your ITR in five other methods, one of which is offline. Aadhaar-based OTP verification isn't the only option for verifying your ITR. Using Net Banking: Select the bank from which you may access your net banking on the e-filing portal's e-verify page. Please visit the bank's online banking website to continue. Complete the procedure by selecting the e-verify option after logging in. Using a Demat Account: Taxpayers with pre-validated and EVC-enabled demat accounts can use this procedure. Select 'Through Demat Account' on the e-Verify screen and click 'Continue'. We'll produce an EVC for you and provide it to your phone or email as soon as it's available. e-Verify your demat account by entering the EVC obtained on your mobile phone and email address associated with your demat account. Via Bank ATM: Seven banks accept e-verification using an ATM card from customers. Banks like Kotak Mahindra, Canara, ICICI, State Bank of India, IDBI, and Axis are part of this group. You can use your bank ATM card to create EVC if you have a bank account with one of the listed institutions and your PAN number is connected to it. Your ATM card may be swiped at an ATM in order to achieve this. To generate an EVC for tax purposes, enter your ATM PIN and choose Generate EVC. You'll receive an EVC through text message and email, depending on how you provided us with your contact information. Enter the 'e-verify returns' option now, and proceed. To validate the ITR, pick the 'I already have an Electronic Verification Code' option when prompted (EVC). Enter the EVC code and click on the e-verify button. Sending an ITR-V receipt with a signed copy: As a means of validating your tax return, you may transmit a signed copy of ITR-V (Acknowledgement receipt). Nonetheless, it is required that the return be signed in blue ink, and it must be mailed by regular or expedited mail. Don't send ITR-V through courier. CPC Bangalore's speed post address is 'CPC, Post Box No. 1, Electronic City Post Office, Bangalore - 560100, Karnataka, India'. You will receive an SMS and email notification once your ITR has been received. Using bank account: Using your bank account, you may generate an Electronic Verification Code (EVC) to validate your ITR. To generate an EVC, you must have a bank account that has been pre-validated.
