Business Desk: There may be a delay in getting income tax refund for FY 2020-21. Most taxpayers who have filed ITR for this year have not yet received income tax refund. When the taxpayers raised their voice against this, the Income Tax Department said that the software is being upgraded for faster processing of ITR. Due to this technical upgrade income tax refund can be delayed.
In fact, many taxpayers had filed ITR in June-July itself, when they did not get tax refund, they raised voice on Twitter for refund. After this, the Income Tax Department said in a tweet that they are moving to a new technologically upgraded platform (CPC 2.0) to provide good services to the taxpayer and faster processing of ITR.
No information about the timeline, the
department said that the income tax return of assessment year 2020-21 will be processed through CPC 2.0. Refund is delayed due to this.
