A simple guide to E-Verify your return!

(Last Updated On: June 26, 2019)

So, you’ve filed your return before the due date? Great!

But have you verified it yet? If not, then you’ve got to do it now because non-verification of ITR is as good as not filing it. ITR requires further processing which cannot be done by IT department unless you verify it. ITR can be verified either manually (sending ITR-V to CPC Bangalore) or electronically (E-Verification).

How’s it done manually?

When you file your ITR, a form named as ITR-V is sent to your registered email. To verify it manually, you need to send form ITR-V to CPC Bangalore within 120 days from the date of filing, by way of speed post or ordinary post on the following address:

Income Tax Department – CPC
Centralized Processing Centre,
Income Tax Department, Bengaluru 560500

How to e-verify ITR?

In totality, there are 6 different methods to e-verify your return:


Option 1: Net Banking


Option 2: Bank ATM


Option 3: Aadhaar OTP


Option 4: Bank Account Number


Option 5: Demat Account Number


Option 6: Registered Mobile Number & Email
