Free Electronic Signature for filing Online tax return

When income tax return is e filed without digital signature then  hard copy duly signed ITR-V is required to be send to CPC , Bengluru with in 120 days from uploading the xml file at site.
But most of time some people fail to send it in due course of time or there might be some postal delay or missing postal
 ITD is currently working on finding a solution to this issue. CPC has been periodically sending email and more recently SMS reminders to all the email addresses and mobile numbers which are stated in the ITRs, wherever ITRVs have not been received.
The facility will help taxpayers who do not have a digital signature. It will save them from the mandatory requirement of sending a hard copy of the return filed electronically through speed post to the department’s central processing centre in Bangalore.

Acquiring an electronic signature will not involve any cost for the taxpayer, as it will be provided by the department. At present only those having digital signatures acquired through specified vendors by paying the required charges need not send the hard copy of the return to the department after filing electronically.ITD is set to introduce a free of cost and easy to operate electronic signture facility to file income tax return online
