Income Tax Department ie Centralized Processing Center (ITD-CPC), Bangalore has started sending final email reminder communication for non-receipt of ITR – V for the assessment year 2013-14.

In regular intervals, CPC sends reminders in the form of email & SMS to those assessees who have filed their income tax return, but have not sent a valid physical copy to CPC within 120 days of e-filing. CPC sends up to 3 reminders to the assessees to submit the valid physical copy of ITR-V.
If you have received such communication from CPC, don’t ignore. You are required to submit the Verification form i.e. ITR V in respect of the e-return for AY 2013 within a week of receipt of this communication.

Who has to submit ITR V? What is the consequence of non-submission of ITR V?
ITR-V is required to be submitted to CPC, by the assessees who upload e-return without digital signature. It is to be done within 120 days of filing income tax return. Your efiling will only be completed after receipt of ITR-V by the CPC. If you fail to submit your ITR-V within 120 days, your e-filing will be considered invalid. It will be treated as if you have not yet filed your return. You then have to file a revised return.
