Is it compulsory to send ITR-V to CPC, Bangalore after e-filing?

Rajesh asks us whether it is necessary to send his ITR-V to CPC, Bangalore. (Rajesh was finally convinced about using ClearTax and e-filed his income tax return successfully)

To complete the process of e-filing, Rajesh must send his ITR-V to CPC, Bangalore within 120 days of e-filing. The instructions on printing and sending ITR-V to CPC, Bangalore are here.

1. Note that Rajesh did not use a digital certificate while e-filing. Hence this manual step is necessary. If you use a digital certificate, you can sign your tax return digitally. You won’t need to send ITR-V to CPC, Bangalore then.

2. ClearTax sells digital certificates. Contact Us and we’ll set it up for you.

3. Rajesh and his wife both used ClearTax. He can send both the ITR-Vs together in a single envelope to CPC, Bangalore! (Instruction number 18)
