Points to note
- After 4 years from the end of the financial year in which the u / s 143 (1) notification was transmitted, you are not entitled to request a rectification.
- If you have used DSC (Digital Signature Certificate) to e-verify your ITR, you should also use DSC to e-verify your rectification request. Your DSC must be active, not expired and registered with e-Filing. If you don’t, you will be directed to the Register / Update Digital Signing Certificate (DSC) page to do so.
- You cannot make any changes to the correction request, nor can you withdraw it. Once the first rectification request is processed in CPC, you can submit another rectification request.
- Only returns that have already been processed by the CPC are eligible for such rectification requests.
- Only the following parties may file a rectification request on the e-filing portal if they receive an order or notice from the CPC under section 143 (1): Registered taxpayers; ERI (which added the client PAN); Signatories and authorized representatives.
