How to e verify ITR using Demat Account

05 Jan 2023

The government mandates the payment of income taxes in order to defray the expenses of delivering essential services to its residents. Paved roads, highway construction, and the establishment of government hospitals are examples of these services. So far, just over 1.5 million Indian residents pay income tax, accounting for little over 1% of the population and 1.6 percent of the adult population.

After filing an income tax return for individuals who pay income tax, taxpayers are advised to validate it so that the Income Tax Department can process it. Taxpayers may now validate their returns in one of two methods, as detailed below.

  • An Aadhar OTP, Net banking, a bank account, or a Demat account may all be used to verify the return digitally.
  •  A signed ITR -V may be sent to the Centralized Processing Center in Bangalore to verify the return.

How can I use an online Demat Account to e-Verify an ITR?

You must first create an electronic demat account verification code before you may e-verify your ITR (or EVC). This is a 10-digit alphanumeric code sent to the taxpayer's registered smartphone number in order to verify their identification. To get your ITR e-verified using an online Demat account, you must follow the procedures below.

  1. Sign in to your account on the income tax e-filing website. If you don't already have one, create one.
  2. Select "View Returns / Forms" from the drop-down menu.
  3. You may examine your pending e-verification returns by clicking on the signs. Select the e-verify button once they are shown.
  4. Then, on your screen, choose the "Generate EVC with Demat account number" option.
  5. Your Demat account must first be pre-validated before this number can be produced.
  6. The following steps will be conducted based on the depository type chosen, i.e.

- NSDL: Fill out and prevalidate the DP ID, client ID, smartphone number, and email address.

- CDSL: Demat account number, smartphone number, and email address must be prevalidated and filled out.

  1. The EVC is now created and transmitted to the bank's tethered mobile phone.
  2. After that, you must enter your EVC number and click the submit button.
  3. You will get a success message after completing these procedures, indicating that you have finished both e-filing and e-verifying your income tax return.
