Delhi HC said – Aadhar card is not necessary for filing ITR;
Now it has been less than 7 days to file income tax returns. Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court has issued a major verdict. The High Court has said that if a person does not have a base number, then he can file an ITR without Aadhar card. At the same time, the court directed the income tax department to make special arrangements on the e-filing website for non-layers.
Website options: Aadhar card
The Delhi High Court gave the verdict during the hearing on the petition of Shreya Sen and Jayashree Satpute. The High Court has ruled in favor of petitioners The High Court instructed the Income Tax department to present an alternative to the filing of files on their web portal without the need for filing it. So that those who do not have the Aadhar card number can file ITRs.
Department said, can not do anything. Aadhar card
The petitioner Jayashree Satpute told in a conversation with SN that we do not have a base number. We first asked the income tax department to ask how to file income tax returns without basis. Jayashree said, “In response to our email from the Income Tax Department, it has been said that nothing can be done in this matter. If you want, do the case. “Jayshree said that after this we went to court.
When we talked to the lawyer who lobbied on behalf of the Income Tax Department, he said, “The income tax department told the court that the Aadhar card number is not necessary at present for the purpose of filing ITR.” Although, according to the directive of the High Court, the income tax website will not be able to fill the ITR without basis, they do not talk about it. At present, if you are filling online ITR, then in ITR Form 1, you have to give the Aadhar card number or the enrollment number.
