How to verify ITR?

A person can choose either way to verify his/her ITR. One can instantly e-verify the ITR – say, via Aadhaar on the same portal – or paper verify it by sending a signed copy of the ITR-V to the Department’s Centralized Processing Centre (CPC) by post within 120 days from the date of e-filing.

Here’s how to verify ITR via Aadhaar based OTP:

In order to verify ITR using the Aadhaar-based one-time password (OTP), the candidate’s mobile number should be linked to Aadhaar card and registered in the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) database. Apart from this, the PAN card must be linked with Aadhaar.



Steps to follow:

    • Step 1: Visit the official website of Income Tax Department of India and go to ‘My Account’
    • Step 2: Click on ‘e-verify return’ and select the option, ‘I would like to generate Aadhaar OTP to e-verify my return.’
    • Step 3: An SMS with the 6 digit OTP will be sent to your registered mobile number. Enter the OTP received in the box where it is required and click on submit.



  • Step 4: Click on ‘Submit’. On successful submission, your ITR will be verified.

Note: One must remember that the Aadhaar based OTP is valid only for 30 minutes.
