Over 2 crore IT Rs have been filed, and the new portal has been significantly stabilised: CBDT

The income tax department announced on Thursday that a number of technical difficulties with the new income tax site have been fixed, and that the portal’s performance has significantly improved. So far, nearly two crore income tax returns (ITRs) for the fiscal year 2020-21 have been filed.

“As of October 13, 2021, the Income Tax Department’s e-filing site (www.incometax.gov.in) had received more than 2 crore Income Tax returns.” The new site was introduced on June 7, 2021, and taxpayers first complained problems and issues with the portal’s operation. A number of technical difficulties have subsequently been fixed, and the portal’s performance has significantly improved,” it stated.

Since its debut on June 7, the new income tax site, http://www.incometax.gov.in, has been plagued with bugs. On August 23, the Finance Ministry “summoned” Infosys CEO Salil Parekh to explain the circumstances that led to the software giant’s site being down. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman voiced “great displeasure” about ongoing problems more than two months after the portal’s debut in a meeting with Parekh on August 23, and gave Infosys till September 15 to address the issues.

The tax agency asked people to file their ITRs for Assessment Year 2021-22 as soon as possible on Thursday. “The income tax department strongly advises all taxpayers to examine their Form 26AS through the e-filing site to verify the correctness of TDS and tax payments and to take advantage of ITR pre-filling.” “All taxpayers who have not yet filed their income tax returns for the fiscal year 2021-22 are urged to do so as soon as possible,” it stated.

“For the fiscal year 2021-22, more than two crore ITRs have been filed via the site, with ITRs 1 and 4 accounting for 86%,” it added. It stated that over 1.70 crore returns had been e-verified, with 1.49 crore using an Aadhaar-based OTP.
