Haven't received income tax refund yet? Here's how to check status

Why are income tax refunds delayed?

Normally, tax refunds are received within 20-45 days from the day of completion of processing of ITR by the Centralized Processing Centre. However, a refund may be delayed in case there is a mismatch between the tax return filed and the details available with the tax department. It may also be delayed in case the details of the bank account mentioned are incorrect.

There are two ways of checking the status of your refund. You can check it on National Securities Depository Ltd’s (NSDL) website as well as on the Income-tax department’s e-filing portal.

Here's how to check ITR status on NSDL website:

Fill in your details like PAN, Aadhaar and assessment year (AY).

-After submitting the details, click on 'Proceed'.

-Your income tax refund status will be displayed on your computer screen.

Here's how to check ITR status on the e-filing portal:

-Log in to the e-filing portal of the income tax department.

-Now select at view returns or forms,

-Go to 'My Account' tab and select 'Income Tax Returns' and click on submit.

-Now you would need to click on the acknowledgement number.
