The Income Tax Department has established a strong framework for reporting taxpayer transactions. Against this backdrop, some taxpayers may realize that they have made omissions or errors in correctly estimating their income for the payment of tax. To provide an opportunity to correct these errors, I am proposing a new provision allowing taxpayers to file an updated return updated upon payment of additional tax. This updated return can be filed within two years of the end of the relevant assessment year,” Sitharaman said.

Thanks to this, postal account holders will be able to conduct online transactions and even transfer money to other bank accounts via netbanking.
