The day after Infosys CEO Salil Parekh said the electronic filing portal for income tax returns was “steadily advancing” to address taxpayer concerns, the government said on Thursday that more than one income tax would be levied. We have announced the Declaration Form (ITR). It has been submitted to date and the platform is “substantially stable”.
Encourage taxpayers to file a tax return for the 2020-21 fiscal year at the earliest. The last day is December 31, 2021. The Income Tax Department of the statement states that over 170 million rupees of declarations have been electronically verified. Rs 149 million was made via an Aadhaar-based one-time password (OTP) system.
The process of electronic verification by Aadhaar OTP and other methods is important for the department to start processing the ITR and issue any refunds.
Of the verified ITRs 1 and 4, ITRs of 1.06 chlore or higher were processed and refunds of Rs 362.22 million or higher were made between 2021 and 2010. The processing of ITRs 2 and 3 will be taken up shortly, the agency said.
The new electronic filing portal was launched on June 7, this year, and shortly afterwards users began complaining about bugs, so the Treasury called an Infosys official (who designed the portal) to ask for a fix.
Due to these issues, the government had to extend the deadline for filing the declaration twice.
However, as the platform continued to be problematic, Treasury Minister Nirmala Sitharaman called Mr. Palek and gave the company time until September 15 to address taxpayer concerns.
Nothing was asked about this issue since then, but in Infosys’ second-quarter earnings call, Parekh said on October 13 that the portal was “steadily progressing” and all concerns were “gradual.” Has been dealt with. “
But he didn’t say anything about when the technical problem would be completely resolved.
