E-filing website doesn’t allow the filing of ITR if Aadhaar number is not mentioned in the ITR form if the status of a taxpayer is resident in India. However, recently, the Kerala and Gujarat High Courts in the cases of Prasanth Sugathan v. UOI [2017] 84 73 and Bandish Saurabh Soparkar v. UOI [2017] 87 48 respectively allowed taxpayers to file their returns manually without furnishing the Aadhaar number or enrollment ID of Aadhaar application form. The Courts held that taxpayers who do not have Aadhaar have to be allowed to file their returns before the department in hard copy for the relevant year as an interim measure. However, it would not be obligatory for the department to process such returns and the Dept. may demand the Aadhaar number from the taxpayers while processing such returns.
