Until the time you verify your income tax return, the filing process is incomplete. There are multiple options through which you can e-verify your ITR and it should be done within 120 days of filing your return. To make the process of e-verification easier,
the Income Tax Department has launched a new feature on its e-filing website. Now, taxpayers can e-verify their income tax return without logging-in to their account.
