Important information relating to filing of ITR forms

By now, many of you would have filed several tax returns of your clients or your own companies or even your own returns. It has been brought to our notice that this year, whenever an ITR form is filed electronically without the digital signature, the system shows that the ITR-V has been e-mailed to the e-mail ID registered with the Income-tax Department's web site. Thereafter, when the ITR-V is tried to be opened, the system asks for a password. This was creating problems as the password that is generally used by the tax payer to log onto the e-filing site does not work while opening the ITR-V.
 
Recently, the Income-tax Department has put up the following clarification on its website. This would help all of you in opening the ITR-V in case of returns filed electronically.
 

Information on how to open your ITRV/ITR ACK

 
Dear TaxPayer,

Please note that you will receive your ITRV/ITR ACK PDF file in a zip format. Please note that the ITRV/ITR ACK PDF document is password protected to ensure it is accessed by the appropriate user. The password is a combination of the pan (in lower case) and the date of birth in the format ddmmyyyy. For example, 1) if the pan is AAAAA0000A and the date of birth is 10-Jan-2008, then the password will be aaaaa0000a10012008 Please note that you will need Adobe Acrobat reader 8.0 or forward to open the password protected PDF file. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, please visit the following link to download it: www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html In case you are unable to open the document, please contact Efiling Income Tax Administrator at ask@incometaxindia..gov.in providing the document along with pan number and assessment year.

    Difficult to understand the logic behind this strange password combination requirement !!! Stranger still is the requirement of sending ITR V by by way of simple mail by everyone from all over the country. Why they cannot continue the old method of submitting to the respective ward which was certain and convenient one.

    The bureucrats in our country are bastards , I tell u, because they change the things very frequently , without any logic and need and force public to do it without any reasoning just to fulfil there desire, whims and ego and their mental satisfaction as to they have changed and done something new without understanding practical difficulties to be faced by public at large

    I have filed e-return , got the email from Dept. enclosing ITR receipt ; Could print it also . But , the forwarding msg.from Dept. contains one funny requirement : the ITR receipt should be printed , signed and sent to Bangalore address only through ordinary post and not through speed post or regd. post or courier and this ordinary post should reach within 30 days of filing the e-return. What is the fate of the return if this ordinary post does not reach the intended address and first of all how the assessee would do whether it reached or not.

    You have already filed your return, please choose 'Revised' option
    Please rectify the Above error(s) and upload your return again
    There id no any option or link for "Revised" in site
    Please Let me know how could I re upload the correct generated xml file ?

    1. Hi,
      EVen I am facing the same problem. In the excel ITR there is an option whether you are filing original or revised. There you make the necessary changes. But my problem is I dont have an acknowledgement number. If you find any solution let me know.

    I was trying to submit the ITR-1 form generated XML thru latest version of Internet Explorer but kept on getting the following error :-

    "Error in upload of ITR. Error in processing the ITR. Please contact the DITAdministrator."

    Then submitted the very same xml thru Mozilla Firefox and it worked - the submission was successful!!
