ITR Filing: Add and validate your bank account on the Income Tax portal, otherwise you will not get a refund..


The last date for filing an Income Tax Return is fast approaching. Meanwhile, the Income Tax Department has made a post on X and appealed to the people to validate their bank accounts so that they can get an Income Tax Refund. One way of doing validation is to validate through a bank account. If your account is not already linked, then you have to add a bank account to it and then validation will be done. Your refund will come to this account only.


What has the Income Tax Department written?
The Income Tax Department has written - 'It is necessary to have a validated bank account to get the refund. Please check your bank account validation status by visiting the e-filing portal.' Along with this, the Income Tax Department has also told the process of validating the bank account.

Check your profile on the Income Tax Portal
First of all, you have to log in to the Income Tax Portal. If you are a new user, you will first have to create a username and password and if you are an old user, you can log in using your username and password.

What to do next?
After logging in, you will have to go to the profile, where you will find a drop-down menu. As soon as you click on this menu, many options will open in front of you. You have to choose the option of profile settings and proceed further.

Give bank account information
In the profile settings, you will see the option of pre-validate your bank account or bank account e-verification. Click on it. After this, you will be asked for bank account information. You have to enter your bank name, account number, IFSC code, and mobile number here. Enter the mobile number which is registered with your bank.

How to validate the account
After this, you will have to validate the account, which you can do with the Electronic Verification Code (EVC) and also through internet banking. If both your bank account and mobile number are linked to Aadhaar, then you should choose the EVC option. An OTP will be sent to your mobile, which will validate your bank account once you enter it on the portal.


Then you will receive a confirmation message
If internet banking is active on your account, it will redirect you directly to the bank's site. Login to your bank account and your account will be validated. When the validation process is over, you will also receive a confirmation message.
