Processing of ITR-1 and ITR-4 has started under instant processing.

Incorrect information of bank account: Under the new process started by the tax department, income tax refund is being issued through electronic mode. This means that the refund amount is being sent directly to the bank account of the taxpayer. In such a situation, if the information related to the bank account in the form is wrong, there can be a delay in getting the refund. Refund will not be available until it is corrected. Bank account information can be corrected by going to the income tax portal. It is also to be noted that the bank account you are giving is linked to your PAN.
Bank Account Validation: To get a refund, it is necessary that the bank account is validated. For this, you go to the website of Income Tax Department and login with the help of PAN and password. After this, you will get the option of a ‘prevalidate your bank account’. If your bank account is integrated with the e-filing portal then prevalidation will be done directly through the electronic verification code ie EVC. You have to provide bank account, IFSC code, mobile number and email id.
ITR not verified: The process of filing income tax returns is completed only after you verify your ITR. If not, ITR processing will not be done and you will get delay in getting refund.
