Here are the three different ways of downloading your ITR-V -
(1) With ClearTax – When you file your return with ClearTax, you can find your ITR-V by simply logging into cleartax.in. Just follow these 3 steps to find your ITR-V –

Password for opening ITR-V – Your password is your PAN number in lowercase alongwith your date of birth and no spaces in between. For example – Example: PAN: AAAPA1111F Date of birth: 01/01/1975 password: aaapa1111f01011975
(2) Email from IT Department – When you e-file your Income Tax Return, the Income Tax department sends your ITR-V to the email address you selected within 2-3 days of e-filing.
Do keep in mind:
- If you file close to the deadline (i.e. July 31st), they will take more time to send your ITR-V. Income Tax Department took around 7-8 days to send out the ITR-V in many cases.
