New Delhi: Ahead of the ITR filing deadline on December 31, the Income Tax department has introduced an initiative to smoothen the process for taxpayers.
The department recently announced the launch of the “Jhatpat Processing” feature to help individual taxpayers in filing their returns quickly in a seamless manner.
The I-T department said the feature has already been started for ITR-1 and 4 forms and taxpayers can file their ITR by visiting the e-filing website.
“Introducing Jhatpat Processing! File Karo Jhat Se, Processing Hogi Pat Se. Processing started for ITR-1 & 4,” the department tweeted.

The I-T department, however, added that the feature will only be applicable to taxpayers whose ITRs are verified and bank accounts are pre-validated.
Individuals must note that there should not be any arrears or income discrepancy and there should be no mismatch in TDS or challan, India Today reported.
