Some Additional Information :

  • What is EVC?
EVC or an Electronic Verification Code is a 7 digit alpha-numeric text. This code helps to e verify (i.e. online verification) of an Income Tax Return. There are many ways to generate an EVC like via ATM or Bank Account Number or Demat Account Number etc.
  • What is the benefit of EVC?
The most important benefit of an EVC is enabling taxpayers the comfort of e verifying their ITR from home. Otherwise earlier, a physical copy had to be sent to CPC, Bangalore which took a lot of time. There was also a risk of the post getting lost during transit which could lead to unnecessary delays.
  • How an EVC works?
As EVC is a digital code, it contains information in the encrypted form which identifies the user and his/her documents. As this code is sent only on the registered mobile and email ID of taxpayer hence it provides security to sensitive information.
  • Since when ITR is being e verified using EVC?
The service of e verifying Income Tax Return using an EVC is being provided since Financial Year 2015-16. Make sure you e verify ITR within 120 days of filing return otherwise it will become an invalid return.
