  1. Though the order says that this stipulation of E verification limit of 30 days is applicable to all those returns filed on or after 01.08.2022, the efiling webportal started implementing this from 30.08.22. We filed a return on 27.07.22 and unable to everify due to PAN- adhar link etc. Yesterday when we tried to e verify, the webportal is asking me to take condomation. This is too much of agression on the part of IT Dept. All returns filed before 31.07.22 will have 120 days to everify. Kindly tell the IT Dept to show maturity and not behave childish excitement.

  2. Nothing new, as India Government is found to be merciless, reckless, whimsical, and functioning in undemocratic manner that immensely damage and discourage willing ITR filers, it needs to be stopped forthwith, the big circulars or any thing else is published, like “Threats” to simple ITR filers, nothing else,
