What are the Modes of Filing Return of Income

Return of income can be filed in paper mode or in e-filing mode. If return of income is filed through electronic mode, then the assessee has following three options:

(1) E-filing using a Digital Signature

(2) E-filing without a Digital Signature

(3) E-filing under electronic verification code

If return of income is filed using a digital signature or under electronic verification code, then there is no requirement of sending the signed copy, ITR V (i.e., acknowledgement of return filed electronically) to Bangalore CPC. 

However, if the return is filed without using digital signature or without electronic verification code, the assessee shall send the signed copy of ITR V on the following address within 120 days of uploading the return either by ordinary post or by speed post only:
