How can an income tax return be verified?

There are a couple of ways you can verify your return.

The most orthodox way is to print the acknowledgement of your return once it is filed and send it by post to CPC Bengalaru. This is the last resort, and you should send this acknowledgement before 30 days of filing the return.

However, return can be verified in the blink of an eye. While the physical submission to CPC can take days to verify your return, these are the ways you can verify your return online.

For Individuals:

Once your return is filed, you can use any one of these ways to verify your return.

Adhaar OTP:

If your PAN is linked with your adhaar, you can opt for adhaar OTP. The OTP would be valid for 15 minutes only. All you need to do is enter the OTP. Boom, return verified.


EVC stands for Electronic verification code. You can generate an EVC using your bank account details, or netbanking. A code will be sent to your phone number linked with your bank account, valid for 72 hours. You can use it to verify your return online.

If you want to know the procedure for other taxable persons, i.e Companies, HUF and other legal bodies, let me know :)

Have a great day.
