Sending Multiple ITR-V in one Envelope to CPC – Bangalore

Guide on Printing, Signing and Sending ITR-V to CPC Bangalore

From the next assessment year it may not be necessary to take the printout of ITR-V and send it to CPC Bangalore. But for this year it is mandatory to take printout of ITR-V, signed it and send it to CPC Bangalore within 120 days of filing of return, if filed without affixing digital signature.

Printing, Signing and Sending ITR-V

So here are points to remember of printing, signing and sending ITR-V to CPC Bangalore:

Printing of ITR-V

ITR-V should be printed out using laser or inkjet printer only, to make the bar code on the ITR-V clearly visible for quicker processing. Dot Matrix printed should not be used for this purpose.

Printout should be taken in Black Ink only.

Always use a fresh A4 size sheet to print ITR-V. Never print two acknowledgement forms back to back, in case you are taking printout of multiple ITR-V. Perforated paper or printout on any other size of paper is not acceptable.

Avoid printing ITR-V with any water marks. The only permissible watermark is that of “Income tax Department” which is printed automatically on each ITR V.

Signing ITR-V

The signature must be done in blue link only, and make sure it is clear and legible.

Photocopy of original signed ITR-V is not accepted, so always send original form having signed in blue ink to CPC Bangalore.

Sending ITR-V

Filing of non-digitally signed tax return is considered complete only when ITR-V reaches the CPC in Bangalore within 120 days of filing of return.

Earlier, sending multiple ITR-V was not acceptable but now you can put more than one ITR-V in same envelope. To make processing of your ITR quicker, send ITR-V of different assessment years in different envelopes.

Dispatch ITR-V in an envelope that can hold an A4 size paper without folding it or stapling it. Also note that no other document is to be attached such as Form 16/16A or TDS certificate etc.

CPC Bangalore Address:

The ITR-V forms should be sent by ordinary post or speed post addressed to

Income Tax Department— CPC,
Post Box No. 1,
Electronic City Post Office,
Bangalore – 560100,

      Yes you should because it is instructed by department.

        Ideally you should if easily available. Else no harm in folding, unless you tamper the generated bar code at the end of ITR-V

      It’s not as such very much mandatory. You just don’t have to tamper the barcode at the end while folding. You can do a simple 3 fold and fit it in normal postal envelopes.

    When you say “but now you can put more than one ITR-V in same envelope”, does it mean multiple ITR-V for the same assessee or multiple assessees?

      Both… You can either send ITR-V of multiple assessees or ITR-V of same assessee, of various years but it has been noticed that in later case the processing of ITR does not get completed on time.

      You can post multiple ITR-V of multiple assessees in same envelope.
      While posting multiple ITR-V of same assessee, post in diferent envelopes for hazzle free processing.
